Course description

What is The Parking Lot Meditation? This is a short meditation that you can do in public Anywhere you can sit and close your eyes for a few minutes I learned it from Serge Kalihi King And it’s based upon the Piko Piko or point-to-point or center-to-center breathing of his Huna tradition. This is a very useful meditation for any time you feel emotional and otherwise off and need to center I would often use this meditation in the parking lot, behind the wheel of my parked car. Before heading back into work after lunch to calm myself Before facing the dumpster fires, I knew I would face there. It is one of the best methods I know to get quickly centered to calm the emotions to come back to yourself to feel safe, secure, and in a place where you can handle anything and everything. How is this easier than other forms of meditation? This meditation can be done sitting, standing, or lying down. No equipment is necessary. The routine is simple and gives a point of focus for your mind. The routine is easy to do and relaxing. You simply go from point to point, inhaling and exhaling, and adding visualization, if you wish. What are the benefits of this meditation? This meditation can be done anytime, anywhere without calling attention to yourself. It is the easiest system to learn that I know of. It is the easiest way I know of to calm down and relax the mind. Why learn meditation? Simple to learn, Easy to do. Gives you one more stress-management tool to help you deal with chaos.

In midlife, I encounter two healing crises: First, my liver shut down. A few years later, I was diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Disease, formerly known as End Stage Renal Failure. Striving to improve my health, I rediscovered Qigong and I’ve been practicing daily now for well over 10 years. I have also learned other mind-body practices, like Huna, which work well with Qigong.
