Learn How to Achieve Peace and Happiness at the FREE Worldwide Meditation Workshop on Monday, April 11, 2022

/assets/image/World-Wide-Shaolin-Zuochan-Meditation-Philosophy-Virtual-Workshop-L-162.png


Master Dao will be conducting a free worldwide meditation workshop on April 11, Monday, from 7pm to 9pm EST (4pm to 6pm PST). Join us in in person at our downtown Toronto school location, or join us virtually through Zoom from anywhere in the world!

Past participants have voted for the topic "How to Achieve Peace and Happiness". Peace and happiness are important for a fruitful life. They are both closely related to mental health and often discussed together, yet these are two different ideas. One of the key goals of Shaolin Chan is to help people achieve peace and happiness. So let’s take a look at finding peace first - what does it mean and how can ancient wisdom and its lessons help us to achieve it?

In the last session, Master Dao spoke about 'Learning How to Deal with Anxiety'. A blog has been written about it and you can view it here: How to Deal with Anxiety.

You can also view past meditation workshop topics and learn about Shaolin Chán in general here: Shaolin Chan-Dao Knowledge Base.

We keep a tally of all the votes and they will accumulate for the next meditation workshop. So be sure to cast your vote when you register!

This Free Workshop is Suitable for Beginners and Advanced Practitioners

This is an opportunity for you to learn about and experience meditation and Chan/Zen/Dao philosophy. Master Dao will make it easy for you to learn and practice ancient Shaolin meditation techniques, and to apply his wisdom of Shaolin Chan-Dao to deal with modern day issues and challenges.

Indeed one can find plenty of information about meditation online. So much so that there is often conflict in meaning, leading to confusion about the practice, its origins, and the long-term goals of practice. Some people meditate because they are seeking peace. Some are seeking spiritual or religious connection. Why might you be interested?

Come learn and open yourself to a modern interpretation of what meditation means in 2022 and how it can really benefit you and the people around you.

You can get a head start on the sitting meditation techniques through our guide here: The Shaolin Seven Points Sitting Meditation Method
