  • Mastering Mind: Learn the HOW TO of 'Living Zen & Inner Peace' - Go Deeper 

    Oakville: Hae Kwang Sunim's 'Zen & Inner Peace' Tea Circle is a safe, healing space.  In this class we address ‘Experiential’ Zen,  Spiritual Awakening in todays world and how to become less ‘Velcro’ and more centred. 

    We also work with the Zen Scalpel that cuts through illusion, unsupportive thoughts, beliefs and mental process. It’s a training that lives with you in your everyday life. You can practice this right now. 

    These are just a few of the topics that come up. This class is made up of loving, kind, sincere like minded people.

    Join Us - All Welcome!

    **Register as early as possible. Please check Meetup for possible cancellations.

    You were born to be free!

    Investment:  90 Minute Classes  $15

    If taking this class and the earlier 'Inner Peace Qigong' Class its only $25 for both.

    More Details:

    The P.K. practice shared in this class is not another self-help tool. It's a clearing tool or Samurai Sword that cuts through and gets us beyond unsupportive thoughts, beliefs and mental processes. In unawareness, acidic thoughts can multiply, dissipate our energy and cause contraction on many levels. P.K. systematically trains the mind to be less 'Velcro' and more skilful at not binding to mind objects (especially unsupportive, judgmental thoughts).

    Conditioning is similar to the downloading of many programs into a mental computer. By middle age, people are saturated with downloads (i.e. mental connections made through past experiences as children, past relationships, work colleagues, parents and their related expectations, guru’s, etc., etc.). When hot topic issues become full in our neuro nets, the mind can even start to condition further on its own. However, with the Zen Scalpel, one comes to see the letting go process at a deeper level. They come to see what is behind conditioning and how to be free. 

    Through the skilful use of the Zen Scalpel, unsupportive conditioning naturally dissolves.  Knowing the proper process is key and if one mentally grasps even slightly, the process becomes corrupted.

    By applying what you learn in these classes, peace starts to take centre stage more and more. Learning how to shift perspective from what we call "Small Mind" to “Big Mind” and to peacefully abide from there is critically important for the nervous system (and healing overall). It's also the doorway to accessing innate wisdom and true compassion. With practice, the heart opens and addictions, ill will and cravings start to fall away. People from many different religious and cultural backgrounds study Zen & Qigong. It serves a great need. Ultimately, world peace can only be achieved if we first establish peace within our own minds.

    "When the mind is trained, quieted, then room is created for our brightness, our True Self to shine through. The nature of True Self IS positive, loving, witnessing, unmoved in the moving. No positive affirmation can deliver the depth of contentment, of joy that already exists, that comes forward from True Self. The more we connect with it, the more it grows through us. In such an environment, the body has comfort, hurry sickness and chasing to 'fix' what we 'thought' we were collapses. The nervous system can finally rest - Stillness. From this place, the body will not easily fall prey to disease." - Hae Kwang Sunim


    "The body is a self-healing organism, so it's really about clearing things out of the way so the body can better heal itself."

    Over time, with this 2,500 plus year technology, the mind unveils its pure, true nature, perfect and boundless.

    "There is a bright pearl within me,

    Buried for a long time under dust.

    Today, the dust is gone and the light radiates,

    Shining through all the mountains and rivers."

    - Zen Master Yueh of Ch'a-ling

    In unawareness, acidic thoughts can multiply, dissipate our energy and cause contraction on many levels. The tools taught in this class systematically train the mind to be less 'Velcro' and more skillful at not binding to thought objects (especially unsupportive, judgmental thoughts). It also opens one to their True-Nature or what in Zen is called "True Self". You have within you an unlimited capacity for extraordinary love, for joy, for communion with life, and for unshakeable freedom—this class teaches the heart of Awakening that capacity, wisdom or light that you originally posses.  **You don’t discover it out there - you uncover it in the NOW, its in you already! - Hae Kwang Sunim
