Explore and experience in a fun and relaxed way how to apply the principles of zen to improve your health and wellbeing through meditation and mindfulness.
Bompu zen (zen purely for health and wellbeing) is recorded as early as the 8th century and provides approaches, concepts, tools and techniques to allow you to live more freely and fully; without stress, anxiety and frustration impeding the body’s natural state of vitality. By seeing and responding to things with more awareness, you can spend more time feeling good, relaxed, calm and alive, and less time struggling, with substantial health benefits.
The six week course, created by Daizan Roshi, a British zen master now based at Zenways in London, takes a new concept each week (e.g. role stress, time pressure, taking care of yourself) and introduces the zen attitude with practical tools (including various meditations), peer-reviewed articles and opportunities to discuss specifically how this applies to your own life situation.
The course is given by George Watson, a qualified Zenways teacher, who has over a decade of meditation experience including two years in Japan, sitting and serving on various retreats, and trying to hang on to some sanity in corporate London.
Everyone gets a recording of the guided meditation with the aim that you try to meditate daily and can give George a call/message any time with any questions or uncertainties as you go.
Committing to an hour early on a Friday morning for six weeks can be tough, and 25 minutes of meditation every day even tougher, but ideally you can start to establish a habit, alongside your yoga and other activities, which has over thousands of years helped countless people to live freer, fuller lives.
