Cheng Hsin Consciousness studies have much in common with Zen, sharing the goal of becoming conscious of the true nature of self and reality. Unlike Zen, we take a realistic, hands-on approach to increasing consciousness, looking into the very mechanisms that constitute human experience. The focus of these Consciousness workshops and courses is for you to have direct insight and personal understanding about the nature of everything from self and mind to communication and relationship. We question all aspects of life and existence understanding our everyday experience and limitations, grasping the inner workings of mind, and uncovering the dynamics of perception. We question to learn greater effectiveness in the world as well as to awaken to the true nature of self and Being.
