JOIN OUR 8:10 pm CLASS:
Living Everyday Zen / Mastering The Mind (This is an Interactive Community Class – ALL ARE WELCOME**) $15.00
Learn HOW to “let go” deeper – You were born to be free! Learn HOW to access the Stillness and Qi Vitality that is your birth right.
In very practical language this class emphasizes tools and essential / experiential Zen mechanics to bring peace and harmony back into ones daily life. Topics also include:
What increases ‘Monkey Mind’ and strengthens unsupportive thought patterns in our rotating mental / psychological orbit.
How to untie painful knots and access True Self. Ego 101 and Instructions on the skillful use of the Zen Scalpel that liberate us from so many judgmental, limiting beliefs.
Zen, Releasing & Inner Freedom: Mind and the two operating systems and how to address acidic ‘holding patterns’ and the body’s residual (energetic) karmic pull which can keep us stuck and limits deeper spiritual insights from arising.
This class “visually” explores the deeper aspects of ego, its maturation and Velcro hold in the body-mind. It also addresses the ‘backward step’ to the boundless fundamental consciousness and freedom beyond the ego’s karmic pull.

About Pon Klie
The P.K. practices taught in this ongoing class series is not another self-help tool. It’s a clearing tool or Samurai Sword that cuts through and gets us beyond unsupportive thoughts, beliefs and mental processes. In unawareness, acidic thoughts can multiply, dissipate our energy and cause contraction on many levels. P.K. systematically trains the mind to be less ‘Velcro’ and more skillful at not binding to mind objects (especially unsupportive, judgmental thoughts).
Conditioning is similar to the downloading of many programs into a mental computer. By middle age, people are saturated with downloads (i.e., mental connections made through past experiences as children, past relationships, work colleagues, parents and their related expectations, guru’s, etc., etc.). When hot topic issues become full in our neuro nets, the mind can even start to condition further on its own. However, with the Zen Scalpel, one comes to see the letting go process at a deeper level. They come to see what is behind conditioning, and that conditioning is empty of self. Through the skillful use of the Zen Scalpel, unsupportive conditioning naturally dissolves. Knowing the proper process is key and if one mentally grasps even slightly, the process becomes corrupted.
By applying what you learn in this class, peace starts to take centre stage more and more. Learning how to shift perspective from what we call “Small Mind” to “Big Mind” and to peacefully abide from there is critically important for the nervous system (and healing overall). It’s also the doorway to accessing innate wisdom and true compassion. With practice, the heart opens and addictions, ill will and cravings start to fall away. People from many different religious and cultural backgrounds study Zen & Qigong. It serves a great need. Ultimately, world peace can only be achieved if we first establish peace within our own minds.
The body is a self-healing organism, so it’s really about clearing things out of the way so the body can better heal itself. Over time, with this 2,500 plus year technology, the mind unveils its pure, true nature, perfect and boundless.
“There is a bright pearl within me,
Buried for a long time under dust.
Today, the dust is gone and the light radiates,
Shining through all the mountains and rivers.”
– Master Yueh of Ch’a-ling
