Spiritual Practice

Everything we do, each involvement which we engage, can be “spiritual practice,” when we remain attentive. In addition to meditation and other methods and exercises we may find useful and enriching, our abiding alertness and sensitive attunement with what life is presenting, while also noting our internal responses, provide self-understanding and inform us of our present capacity of functional consciousness, while suggesting how we might elevate our perspective and adjust to align more harmoniously and freely in life. Relaxed attentiveness is the key, and by remaining calmly attentive our appreciation of life can be enhanced.

The Teacher

Arising early each morning at his hillside home, Master Wing reverently bowed three times, uttering: “I give thanks for the opportunity to serve. I give thanks for the opportunity to learn. I give thanks for the opportunity to grow.” He then entered qigong practice, meditated in silent stillness, and awaited the arrival of the first of several private students scheduled for the day.
