The traditional form of the Shaolin Sitting Meditation is a Still Meditation exercise. The goal of the exercise is to continually lessen mental activity.

The 7 Points or Steps of Sitting Meditation are:

1. Seated Position
2. Straight Back
3. Shoulders Back and Chest Forward
4. Hand Position
5. Neck Straight and Head Levelled
6. Tongue on Roof of Mouth
7. Eyes

Click the links above to view more details about each point. Not all details are available at this time, and we'll add more soon!

When you have found a comfortable seated position, begin by counting the breaths with every breath in and breath out. When you reach ten, start over again at zero. Repeat until the mind becomes focused and calm.
