More energy, more concentration, more peace, more love, more kindness

Zen is a form of Buddhist meditation—there is nothing to believe in, and nothing special to do or be—no special robes, no shaved heads (unless that’s what you happen to want), no special anything. We simply sit down on a cushion or chair and learn to pay attention to what is going on.

Intro To Zen Talks

We have two sets of talks by Henry Shukman that serve as good introductory material to Zen practice — audio and video.

Mindful Meditation Starters

Here are some “meditation starters” to help you get started – and get settled – in meditation.

We recommend that you set up on a chair or on a cushion, and then play these one by one (in the displayed sequence). Use them to start up your practice sessions either at home or at work.

Please choose a quiet place where you are unlikely to be disturbed, switch off your phone, and drop in.

By all means allow yourself to sit longer than the recording itself, as your schedule permits. Enjoy.

Guided Meditations from Henry Shukman

Here are some short guided meditations to help – and deepen – your ongoing practice.

We recommend that you set up in a quiet space where you won’t be disturbed, on a chair or a cushion, and play whichever of these you are drawn to.

The meditations with Mu are for people who are beginning to sit with this first koan.

By all means allow yourself to sit longer than the recording itself, as your schedule permits. Enjoy.
