Zazen


Zazen, a form of sitting meditation in the Zen Buddhist tradition, shares a close relationship with Japanese martial arts that dates back centuries. At the heart of zazen practice is the desire to abandon the ego, sharpen one's visceral awareness, and eliminate the "interfering mind" that separates perception from action. Zazen itself consists mainly of sitting motionless, "wide awake" and entirely focused on the immediate present. Aiki Farms incorporates zazen practice (Rinzai lineage) into every class.
