Traditional Norfolk koans

Ancient wisdom to quicken the omnipercipient


In the east of England, from prehistoric times to the present, there has been an esoteric tradition of wisdom-teaching embodied in Norfolk koans.

Transmitted orally through lineages of initiated master-teachers, these elliptical verses have preserved the deep shamanic wisdom of antiquity.

Intoned accurately, Norfolk koans can be experienced as personal portals into the executive dimensions of earth magic.

In common with all major world scriptures, Norfolk koans are at once profoundly wise and engagingly unfunny. One hundred and eighty four of the finest examples of the genre are assembled below.
