DahnJon Training Workshops – Don’t miss out!
Master Meditation Training Workshops
Led by Zen Master, Rev. Rev. Gil, Won-Buddhist Kyomunim
A very special event is happening!
Do you know you can be grounded yet feel free at the same time?
Have you wished to perfect and deepen your meditation skills?
Here is a special opportunity to learn ancient and essential DahnJon-center focusing method, which will help you master your meditation practice!
DahnJon (Dantian) is often translated as "elixir field" or "sea of chi". The DahnJon is an important energy center that we strive to cultivate in meditation, Chi-gong, and martial arts; which can help us maintain good balance and health. Originally developed as an ancient Taoist practice, DahnJon awareness is central to all forms of Won Buddhist meditation.
This workshop will be offered three times (repeated) at the Chapel Hill Temple. There will be systematic guidance for locating, objectively examining, and experiencing your DahnJon by the especially skilled Zen master, Rev. Gil. Don’t miss this experience!!!
The workshop specifically includes:
1) Learning about the 21 stages of DahnJon abiding practice;
2) Discovering your own breathing rhythm; each of us has our own unique and most comfortable way of breathing;
3) Using a walking meditation technique that utilizes your foot DahnJon center.
Rev. WonGong and Rev. Ginger will offer assistance during all of the workshops. These workshops are good for beginners, seasoned practitioners, and everyone in between. Space is limited in order to allow for more individual mentoring.
