Japanese Meditation (Soto Zen) brings the spirit of the mind to a state of relaxation and inner peace. Meditation practice provides a genuine and accessible way to transform the lives of those who engage it. The meditation program at FHMAA provides the student an opportunity to experience this dynamic 2,500 year old tradition in a distinctly Western context. Soto Zen takes a spiritual and not religious approach to training. It is a journey about the self and the environment that the self exist in. Meditation training centers the being and dilutes the effects of day to day stress. At Fishhawk Martial Arts Academy, we strive to bridge the insights of traditional Zen with the challenges of modern life. This training is a personal training experience with Shihan Jones.
