Peace and Nature is holding Zazen Meditation workshops as part of our mission to develop the human potential of participants and to raise ‘Global Green Leaders’. In Zazen, your slow and deep breathing gradually warms up your body, and you come to feel moments of ease. The regulated breathing of Zazen has been shown to 1.) help you relax using alpha brain waves, and 2.) lead to brain stimulation due to the release of serotonin. We encourage you to try this experience and master the breathing techniques for use during your work and daily life. We will also teach Zen sayings that contain life wisdom. We welcome your participation.
