Sheng Zhen 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 peacefully in the space of an open and loving heart. When the heart is open, the mind naturally calms down, and one automatically enters into the natural state of perfect well-being. What is Qi? Qi is the origin and essence of life. It is the life force energy that animates all things. Qi and Unconditional Love are always connected, never separate. When we gather qi, we are gathering love, the strongest and best medicine. What is Sheng Zhen Meditation? 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.
This style of yoga focuses on passive stretching and deep breathing. Deep breathing can help soften areas of the body that may feel “tight” or “tense.” Additionally, posture holds and deep breathing can help elicit the relaxation response. The relaxation response can help calm down the nervous system, tend to frayed nerves, slow down breathing, reduce blood pressure, and so on.
Although restorative yoga does not necessarily present physical challenges, you may experience discomfort finding stillness in the mind and/or the body. You may experience a strong desire to fidget or to move on to the next thing. With no distractions, the mind may wander. You may think about your to-do list, recount your day, delve into habitual thought patterns, uncover areas of suffering, and so on.
