What to prepare?

Essential:

  • Comfortable clothing is a good start to allow your body to relax.
  • Prepare yourself a meditation cushion or stool. Don't have it? A stable chair without wheels will do. Just make sure you can sit comfortably.
  • A blanket to cover your knees or put your feet onto if sitting on a chair. Just to keep yourself warm.

Optional:

  • You might want to keep a bottle of water aside to stay hydrated.

What is Chan Meditation?

  • Meditation is understood as self-cultivation, a process of working with our mind and body to develop focus and clear perception.
  • Chan is the precursor of Zen. It is the Chinese translation of the Sanskrit word dhyāna means the meditative state.
  • Chan teaching directly points to the ultimate truth, the nature of mind, or who we are. There are two unique Chan meditation methods you may heard of: Hua Tou (Japanese: wato), and Silent Illumination (Japanese: shikantaza).
  • Chan practice focuses on cultivating mindfulness, compassion and wisdom in our busy daily living. Practice being able to relax and be content at every moment.
