The ultimate goal of meditation is to open your wisdom. If your goal is set to be healthier or become happier, your practice will produce limited results and soon you will face the dead end.
When we think of meditation, we automatically relate it to "relaxation" or "feeling good". In fact, Chan Meditation, one of the most powerful meditation schools, advocates to sit and endure discomforts while meditating in sitting posture. Only hard work and consistent effort will produce genuine results in meditation training.
In Chan meditation, the results are solid and concrete. You will be much more relaxed and peaceful by increasing your concentration power. This class will teach some of the basic meditation techniques of Chan. The powerful techniques of Chan will help you develop greater focus and concentration with an immediate and practical application to your life, enhancing your work and daily routines. As your concentration power grows, you will become calm and centered. You will become healthier and function more effectively at whatever you put your mind to. Furthermore, Chan training will help you build strong foundations which will help you keep making progress along the way and reach your highest potentials.
