When Buddha's teachings were carried to China they blended with Taoism and Confucianism to form Hanmi Buddhism. Hanmi Buddhism has many parallels with Tibetan Buddhism (whose teachings also trace back to Narlanda University in India).
Practices are founded on the union of the three mysteries - body speech and mind. What this means in terms of the form, is that we combine mudras (usually hand but sometimes whole body positions) with mantras (special or sacred sounds) with calming or symbolic visualisations. In this way we engage every aspect of ourselves and quickly progress.
NO NEED TO BECOME BUDDHIST!
Hanmi meditations are very accessible and suitable for almost everyone. There is no need to become Buddhist as we simply offer practical methods for increasing health, peace of mind and wisdom. All levels of fitness can participate as most practises are done in comfortable sitting postures. Beginners are also well catered for as the mind is kept occupied by things that soothe it. Even those with health problems may find some healing here. To download a pdf on the history of Hanmi Buddhism click here.
