【Experience】 Zazen Workshop

■ What is Zazen? ■
Zazen is the fundamental method of practicing Zen. During Zazen, practitioners sit in a proper posture and meditate to find who they are and try to live in a way they truly are. In modern, there are little time for introspection in the daily life, and that‘s why Zazen attracts lot of attention of many people, including celebrities.

■What are the effects of Zazen?■
It is expected that correcting and adjusting the posture, breathing and mind can solve problems, relive stress and improve concentration. Taking time for introspection causes changes in your mind and soul. 
Perhaps what you worry is not a big deal if you think from a calmer perspective, or you might find out what is truly important to you during Zazen.

■Guidance from a Monk■
Zazen workshops are held under the guidance of a monk from 8:30 PM in the Great Hall on the first floor on the day of your stay. Do not worry if you do not know the proper methods and etiquette because the monk will guide you with clear instructions.
