Meaning of Zen

Zazen is a seated meditation that is typically the primary practice of the Zen Buddhist tradition.
By sitting you can integrate your body and mind and find your inner calm.​ ​
It may be hard to sit straight for a long time and please note that you may be reminded if you do not keep your posture.
These warnings are done as an encouragement to ensure successful meditation experience.
