Zazen session guided by Jokan (Japanese Tendai Buddhist Priest)In Tendai sect, the name of sitting meditation is "Shikan". "Shi" means "stop" or "pause". We spend very busy days on working, studying, playing and living nowadays. A high information society makes our lives stressful and anxious. Our sitting meditation offers the moment to find your stillness and relax the body and mind. We will count the number of our breaths in order to counteract the daily stresses.
