The chief priest, Teramae Join will instruct you in how to sit, breath and focus before initiating a short 10 minute session of meditation. After sounding a bell to break you from your trance, he will give a further explanation of the ways of Zen before beginning another short period of contemplation. He is then able to answer any questions you have about this form of meditation, Buddhism or life in general!
