As the shift to a new normal lifestyle becomes a hot topic, meditation, which is said to be effective in reducing anxiety and stress, is attracting attention again.
Seven o’clock in the morning, gather at the lobby on the 4th floor filled with the dignified morning air, and start the original meditation experience of GOOD NATURE HOTEL KYOTO by Mr. Tohryo Ito, the deputy chief priest of Ryosokuin, the pagoda of Kenninji Temple in Kyoto.
Walk slowly through the building with barefoot, which is filled with the texture and warmth of greenery and wood.
Face the plants and have a dialogue with yourself.
Close your eyes and relax while feeling the smells, sounds, and light around you.
Feelings and warmth from your hands and feet, faint noises, and the ever-changing light.
By paying attention to these trivial sensations that we usually don’t notice, we realize that we are fully utilizing our “five senses”.
We all tend to get caught up in the thoughts in our head rather than the sensations we feel with our “five senses”.
When our consciousness is occupied with negative emotions, we feel anxiety, regret, sadness, anger, etc., which are not actually there. Feel as you are and accept as you are.
In NATURE MEDITATION, you will be able to feel that comfort.
Meditation is the process of increasing the functioning of consciousness to attain spiritual enrichment and tranquility.
Zazen is a further step in meditation, to view the fusion of self and nature, and to dissolve the ego.
NATURE MEDITATION here is a gateway to that state of being.
We propose a time to regain the connection with nature.
The three G’s, Grounding, Generating, and (Self-)Growth, inspired by the word “Good,” will also be the keywords. Please join us in comfortable clothes.
This activity will be held on the morning of check-out day.
