Arigato Zen Meditation & Sound Bath-ありがとう禅とサウンドヒーリング

  • Yoga Remedy's Essential Wellness (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS


(日本語の詳細は、下です。)

We will practice Dr. Soho Machida's Arigato Zen Meditation. Arigato Zen is a vocal chanting meditation (also known as 'Voice Yoga'). It is quite different from regular meditation.

First-timers are welcomed. Feel free to bring your friends as well.

$10 donations, please. (cash only, at the event)

Please prepare to sit or lie down for a long time. Wear comfortable clothing. Bring a yoga mat, a blanket, and/or a pillow. Some will be provided but it'd be best to bring anything you would like to have. Chairs are available as well.

The class will close with a sound healing session. See below for more details.

http://www.arigatozen.com/index.phpOfficial Site:

The meditation consists of four pillars:

1."Arigato Walking"

2."Kannon (gratirude) Zen"

3."Kangi (joy) Zen"

4."Nehan (nirvana) Zen""

Followed by a Sound Bath session.

Description:

"Arigato Zen" (arigato: thank you in Japanese) is an easy & simple voice-meditation which Dr. Soho developed based on his 20-yrs. Zen training and scholarship as a specialist of comparative religion.

When a group of people chant “arigato” together, inaudible super-sonic sounds are produced. These sounds and their delicate vibrations stimulate the pineal gland of the brain to change brain waves from beta to alpha waves. We emit alpha waves in pleasant situations such as when we listen to good music, or enjoy a glass of fine wine. That is why the participants become quite cheerful after the meditation.

By performing the "Arigato Zen", one is able to remove themselves of negative memories within one’s own sub-consciousness, which lie at the root of all problematic phenomena. By achieving clarity of the sub-consciousness, one is able to live with a sense of vast fulfillment and joyfulness.

With his motto, "through physical practices, you can experience real mental change", Dr. Soho invented this revolutionary method of meditation that transcends religion and ethnicity.

ありがとう禅の練習を、Harbor Cityのヨガスタジオで行います。

初心者大歓迎。10ドルのドネーションをお願い致します。(現金でお願い致します。)

瞑想の後、サウンドヒーリングで終わります。

床に座ったり寝転がったりできる服装でいらして下さい。ヨガマット、ブランケット、枕などのご持参をお勧め致します。椅子もご用意できます。

ありがとう禅とは、潜在意識と無意識をクリーニングする方法として、比較宗教学者の町田宗鳳教授が開発した瞑想法です。「ありがとう」という母音を、皆で大声で発すると、倍音が生じ、可聴域を超えた高周波音が脳波をβ波からα波に変え、幸福感を感じられます。宗教ではなく、声のヨガです。
