Sheng Zhen (pronounced “shung jen”) is the highest and most sacred truth. It can be translated into English as "Open Heart" or "Unconditional Love." It is a state of being that can only be understood when the busy mind comes to rest in the space of an open and loving heart. When the heart is open, the mind is naturally calm, and one enters into the natural state of perfect well-being.
Sheng Zhen Meditation is a method of self-healing, often referred to as "practices of Unconditional Love." It involves a series of moving and non-moving meditations, all designed to remove stagnant or negative energy and gather positive healing energy (qi). The movements and contemplations of Sheng Zhen Meditation help re-create that deep sense of inner peace we experienced as small children. As the body softens, and negative emotions are released, one experiences a feeling of perfect harmony with the universe.
Sheng Zhen Meditation has three functions. It strengthens the body, calms the mind by removing negative emotions, and opens the heart. With regular practice, one experiences a renewed sense of joy and purpose, a deeper understanding of life, and more compassion for oneself and others.
The practice is comprised of gentle, graceful, healing movements and contemplations that stimulate the body's life force energy (qi), producing a deep sense of inner-peace and well-being. Practicing the slow, rhythmic and symmetrical movements of Sheng Zhen Meditation promotes healing unique to each person, and can accelerate other (traditional) healing processes as well. Consistent, dedicated practice harmonizes the body, calms the mind and the emotions, and increases overall confidence, and a general sense of well-being. Ultimately, one can experience a sense of merging with the universe: a feeling of open-hearted Unconditional Love, acceptance, and joy.
