Zazen in English

Zazen for international residents, students and tourists at Kenchoji in 2016
外国人の方へ英語で坐禅指導いたします。
Zazen (literally “seated meditation”) is a meditative discipline that practitioners perform to calm the body and the mind. Practitioners attempt to concentrate enough to experience insight into the nature of existence and thereby gain enlightenment. Zazen helps generate the energy to be aware and awake to the present moment. It is the continuous practice of touching life deeply in every moment. Zazen practice is therefore the passage to mindfulness. In this session, we would like to help you experience the practice of Zazen or mindfulness. Mindfulness is not something you study at a desk, but a practice available to you anywhere. So, just feel it!
