‘Zazen’(Seated) Meditation

‘Zazen’(Seated) Meditation

Meditation is one the primary Buddhist practices and one which brings great peace and joy to both practicing Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike. ‘Zazen’ or ‘Seated Meditation’ focuses practitioners on their posture, breathing and mindfulness. In doing so the body and mind find unity and in the quiet stillness of the practice, we become present in the moment, free of distraction, and open to the true nature of existence.

zenkoji-jizo

Zenko-ji Temple offers all visitors the unique experience of practicing seated meditation in the atmosphere and sacred settings of one of Japan’s most important temples. Each meditation is guided by a resident monk, taking at least 30 minutes (times can vary depending on the particular sitting). Experiencing ‘zazen’ at Zenko-ji affords visitors a reflective, peaceful, and personal insight into the basis of the Buddhist religion.
