Peace Meditation

Practicing meditation is a way to really understand oneself. Chan meditation teaches us to listen to silence and to learn how to stabilize our heart so that we can see our true self in the tranquility, while reflecting shows us how to practice meditation and to awaken our perception to true phenomena.

Chan practice is not a religion, but an effective method to learn about ourselves and to achieve physical wellness. Dharma Master Hsin Tao developed the Peace Meditation of Ling Jiou Mountain. Based on the Four Steps of Chan, this practice includes: breathing, sitting, walking and moving meditation (Gong Fa). Practicing the Four Steps and listening to the sound of silence help us to return to our origin and find our own serenity.
