The Structure of Stillness

A Meditation With Jamie Path

Thursday, March 20th - 10:00 am - $10


A Guided Practice into the Foundational Postures and
Breath Techniques of Chan (ZEN) Buddhism.



Becoming ZEN.


Along the journey of meditation from its earliest 
documented origins in India to its most well known manifestation of 
ZEN in Japan, the practices and techniques evolved and bloomed in 
China. Blending with the indigenous techniques of Taoist Philosophy 
and Chinese Qigong, stationary meditation became an integral 
component of Chan Buddhism - the focused awareness of body, breath, 
and mind creating a repeatable method of enlightenment and leading to 
an indestructible and always available sense of well being. 

These most fundamental practices of meditation became known as Hou 
Tian Qi (Post Heaven Breath) and were viewed as the refinement of the 
physical breathing process that begins at the moment of birth - 
transcending the automatic function of respiration to now clear the 
mind, relax the body, heighten sensitivity, and connect to spirit 
through correct posture and complete awareness
and control of the breath.

In this guided meditation, journey through five easy and relaxed 
stationary body positions, each with a unique accompanying pattern 
of breath, to completely oxygenate the body and establish a 
grounded repertoire of skillful breathing techniques toward
everyday ZEN. 


Potential side effects may include feelings of balance and serenity.
