How can we sustain our state of wellness?
We offer the following three practices to help you to live in a constant state of wellness. If you practice diligently, you will witness its effectiveness. In other words, only through “honest practice” you can “truly witness”. After all, learning only enriches your mind, practice is the only way to enrich your body and spirit. In other words, wellness can only be harvested only when we are fully energized, happy and loving.
The first practice is to take care of your body. Then the second practice is to take care of your mind. The third practice will help you to maintain your state of wellness through living a healthy lifestyle. Though they are three separate practices, but you need to practice them as one, because our body, mind, and spirit affect each other. They are intimately connected and integrated. In other words, if you are in pain, you would not feel happy. Or on the contrary, if you are under pressure, your body’s circulation would be poor and your breathing would be shallow with little oxygen. And you would feel tired and even agitated or negative.
The practice of PaidaLajin.
The practice of PaidaLajin is a self-diagnosis and self-rejuvenating technique without medication or equipment. Based on Yellow Emperor’s Inner Canon, it is a deeper form of cupping, as was used on Michael Phelps. In short, this technique can detect whether you have blockages in your microcirculation in your body, as well as clean out where they are blocked. Microcirculation is the circulation of your capillaries and lymph, the last mile connecting to your organs and joints. If they are blocked, nutrients will not be able to enter and toxic waste of your body cannot get out. Then your organ or joint will not function properly.
You can google “PaidaLajin” to find out how powerful it is.
This mindfullness meditation practice that we teach is taught exclusively to people, interested to reach enlightenment. It is called Ch’an meditation. Ch’an was taught in China in the 5th century, then was brought to Japan in the 13th century. They pronounce the same Chinese character of Ch’an (禪）as Zen. Though Ch’an has a Buddhist origin, but its essence really is just a meditative practice without any religious formalities. For 2,000 years, Ch’an has always been taught “without words or formalities”. That’s why when Ch’an arrived into Tibet, it morphed into Tibetan Buddhism; into Vietnam, it became Thien; into Korea, it developed into Hanja. It is simply an amazing spiritual practice labeled with different names by each regional culture.
Ch’an emphasizes that, only through dedicated mindfulness meditation, can we achieve the utmost health, clear our mind and awaken our spirit. Its technique is unique, because it is based on the same principles as acupuncture, it can quickly de-stress our mind, improve our circulation, rejuvenate our hormonal glands, and energize us.
