Seated Forms of Sheng Zhen Meditation
Awakening the Soul
When the Heart is open, it possesses the qualities of willingness and suppleness, of having a natural sense of wonder and freedom from fear. As these qualities grow and develop, as the heart opens, one can return to the origin, to breathe the original breath and become one with the pulse of the universe. This meditation has the power to achieve this. When the soul is awakened, one’s life becomes inspired, and doubt and worry cease to exist. The burden of life becomes non-existent as in a newborn child.
Sheng Zhen Healing
Sheng Zhen Healing Practice is a restorative medical form that blends an ancient tradition with gentle, meditative movements performed seated on a chair. Sheng Zhen Healing Practice is an integration of healing traditions, using the power of Nature to heal oneself. What is the essence of the practice? The practice leads one to the original state that abides in every human being. One comes to experience the opening of the Heart and the stillness of the mind. This form is loved by many for the physical and mental benefits it has bestowed upon them. There are 3 Stages of Sheng Zhen Healing Practice, and each stage has 10 movements. Stage 1 is for the purpose of gathering healing qi into the body. Stage 2 emphasizes the processing of healing qi in the body. Stage 3 allows healing qi to go deep into each cell of the body. Stage 1 is quite effective all on its own, and it is the foundation of stages 2 and 3. We highly recommend this practice to people who have cancer.
Heart Spirit as One
In the practice of Heart Spirit as One, the practitioner is brought to the experience of receiving the Love from which the universe was created and the Love into which everything dissolves. Love is a powerful energy. Allow Love to enter the Heart. This sitting practice is both meditation and self-healing. One will gradually be able to hold the positions longer when one is dedicated to the regular practice of Heart Spirit as One.
Listening to the Heart
Listening to the Heart gifts the practitioner with the experience of spontaneous joy. Many people have forgotten that within them is the source of the deepest joy and that returning to the natural state will enable one to tap into that endless source of joy in the Heart. Do this practice with a spirit of openness, imagining yourself in a happy, beautiful, harmonious, and perfect world.
This practice is for self-cultivation and Heart nourishment, to help one obtain long-lasting happiness. This form creates a blissful state. Each movement has a corresponding meaning. It is important to grasp the meaning of the previous movement to understand the significance of the next. This form is practiced while sitting cross-legged on the floor or seated in a chair.
