Introduction to Zen Meditation and Breath Work
Creative Health & Wholeness
Covid-19 has certainly made the concept of health top-of-mind for most of us this past year (or is it decade?) and more. And the concept of health includes far more than merely the narrow medical aspect of surviving this particular virus.
Our mental, emotional and financial health are tested daily. We need information, tools, resources, and experiences to enable us to not just survive Covid, but to live our lives with the health and wholeness we desire as creative spirits.
Chicago Creative Coalition is dedicating this program year to bringing opportunities for creative health and wholeness forward.
Zen Meditation and Breath Work
Deepen your relaxation. Relieve stress and anxiety. Develop body, mind and breath for a more vibrant experience of every-day life.
Meditation and breath work are transformative practices that can deepen our connection to the mind and body and help us be more present in our daily lives. These methods can help to develop Hara (center), Kokyu (breath) and Kiai (vital energy).
With regular practice, meditation and breath work can significantly reduce stress and anxiety, improve mental clarity and help us cultivate a well-grounded state of awareness. In this interactive workshop you will experience center, breath and energy and for yourself. This is an introduction to what can become a regular daily practice of self-discovery and transformation.
