TEACHER: Seishin Jasna Todorovic
MEDITATION THEME: Meditate with the body, not with the mind
Seishin: When my teacher, a Zen monk, returned to the USA after training in Japan, he was surprised to see that meditation was being taught as something you do with the mind. At his monastery, he was taught it is something you do with the body — the mind just naturally ends up following. In this meditation we will use five points in the body to simplify our practice and return to our embodied selves, and notice what effect this has on our minds. This is a subset of the Jade Method (those who are interested can sign up for the full online course in January – see event listing!).
