"How to Recharge Your Brain Quickly with Integrated Zen-Dao Breathing Meditation," was held on October 12, 2023, at CIRCLE, and was hosted by the Chinese Program of the Department of World Languages and Cultures. The event was made possible with the support of sponsors including the Office of International Initiatives, CULTR (Center for Urban Language Teaching and Research), and the Asian Studies Center.
Master Tan, a distinguished guest speaker from China, led the event, providing insight into the practice of Zen-Dao Style Meditation, which incorporates elements of Buddhist philosophy, Daoist principles, and Chinese Medicine. This holistic approach, known as the Zen-Healing System, was the focus of the talk.
Approximately 50 attendees, including students, faculty, staff, and members of the local community, gathered to participate in the event. The highlight of the evening was a 25-minute meditation session conducted by Master Tan. During this session, attendees were able to experience the profound benefits of Zen-Dao meditation firsthand, allowing them to clear their minds and find inner peace.
Following the meditation session, attendees had the opportunity to interact with Master Tan, where they could ask questions and gain further insight into the practice. This engagement provided a unique chance for the audience to deepen their understanding of Zen-Dao meditation and how it can be incorporated into their daily lives for stress reduction and mental clarity.
