Hara: The Vital Center of Man
by Geddes, Anne

ISBN: 9781594770241
PUBLISHER: Inner Traditions
FORMAT: Paperback
PAGES: 216
PUBLICATION DATE: 27.10.2004


DESCRIPTION:
When we speak of an individual's state, we are actually referring to something that transcends the duality of the body and soul, something that reflects the entirety of a person's being. Because each of us is a unity of body and soul, there is no psychic structure or inner tension that is not reflected outwardly in the form and order of the body. When we find the physical centre of the body, we, also, find the psychological centre of the soul. According to Zen masters, by correcting posture and breathing to balance this centre, one can cultivate inner tranquillity and balance: the state called Hara. In Hara, Karlfried Graf Durckheim shows the Western world how to overcome the physical and spiritual decay of modern life by adopting the age-old techniques of Japanese Zen masters. By leaving behind the "chest out - belly in" posture and attitude of the west and adopting the belly-centred posture and attitude of Hara, individuals can live a calm, grounded and more balanced life. Included in this classic text are vital life force practices and translations of the wisdom teachings of three Japanese Zen masters. This book, also, explores how the practice of Hara emphasises empirical learning and the cultivation of self-knowledge through the perfection of arts such as painting and archery.
