Title: Health and Wellness Workshop: On Stretches for Meditation
and Proper Sitting Postures

Meditation is an essential practice in learning Zen Buddhism. There is an old saying that states, “The merit of a short meditation can bebetter than that of building a magnificent pagoda. Eventually the pagoda will diminish into ashes while a glimpse of pure mind from meditation can give rise to enlightenment.”

To prepare for meditation, one has to adjust 5 things: body, mind, breathing, diet, and sleep. With respect to adjusting the body, most of the people   cannot endure the leg and/or back pains in meditation.

However, there are various techniques helping meditators to ease these situations. In this workshop, Dr. Wendy Chuang will explain them in detail and provide us practical tips as to developing more proper postures for sitting as well as walking meditation.>> Flyer
