    Haha jk hardly a master of anything ;)

    I am a Zen practitioner, in particular the school of Gyobutsuji Zen Monastery in America & Antai-ji in Japan.

    The focus is Zazen, and in particular the "Simply Sitting" method.

    In this practice one simply sits and opens up to life, presence, awareness, and letting go. Pretty intimate practice as it really is simply spending time with oneself and than understanding the nature of self.

    Look forward to chatting with the community and learning from everyone here Zen Master!  Hug2

    Hi cedartree :welcome: :si:



    I have heard of zazen and it sounds similar to mindfulness e.g. heightened awareness of self and surroundings.  If you know about mindfulness, is it the same thing as zazen?  If not, in what way would you say it differs?
