Zen Focusing is a meditative way of awakening to, reintegrating, and healing wounded and un-acknowledged parts of ourselves that many spiritual practices do not address, but bypass! The Zen Garland Way is to turn toward what’s difficult, what blocks us, what causes us to engage in repetitive harmful behaviors.

From a healing perspective, rather than to deny, repress, transcend, or ignore the difficult and unknown, Zen Focusing allows us to become aware of unexplored aspects of ourselves. Threads of problematic memories, difficult emotions, distorted beliefs and problematic behavior patterns intertwine and are stuck in a knot (klesha). When applying Zen Focusing to access new, creative ideas and approaches, attention to somatic sensations related to our focus brings forth new associations, insights, and forward moving energies.
