Soto Zen Meditation
Soto Zen was developed in the ninth century by the Chinese Monks Tozan (Ch. Dongshan) and Sozan (Ch. Caoshan). The school focuses on meditating without a specific goal in mind. The form believes that all humans are already inherently enlightened, and only need to discover this fact. Zazen meditation (seated meditation), Mindfulness, Cultivating insights, Practicing detachment, and kinhin (slow walking meditation) are essential elements of the practice. Soto zen meditation brings an awareness of the workings of oneï¿½s mind and is known as an everyday Meditation Practice. The practice teaches practicing together as a community and helping each other.
