So, this is my first post here, I am very new, I just joined a few days ago. I just wanted to share that I have been doing the Shikantaza Zazen and I am amazed at how calm it makes me!! I have been meditating for 1 year now, but never any specific kind. It is so nice to have this zazen meditation to follow as a guide!! I've also been conscious to try and practice zazen all throughout the day. When I get stressed or irritated with my kids, I think of zazen and I respond with a kind word instead.
I have been looking forward to my meditation time each day ever since joining TreeLeaf and practicing zazen.
