Zen focuses on attaining awakening through meditation and the mindful attention to one’s actions. Zen meditation is a central practice of the Zen tradition. It begins in a seated position, with the legs crossed in a meditation pose. After getting completely relaxed, the individual will begin concentrating on his or her breath. As each breath is drawn from the belly, he or she will notice the response of the body and guide the mind into a more enlightened state.
iZen provides Zen music that helps you reach an inner calm that you can’t achieve in silence. It gives your mind something peaceful and tranquil to concentrate on while you try to reach a state of higher awareness.
iZen provides you a daily Zen quote that gives you guidance while you search for deep inner-peace and ultimate mental awareness.
iZen can help increase your concentration enough to stay with the meditation. It also helps take your mind off your day to day activities. Music has been used for thousands of years as a way to get people into a sacred state of mind. iZen can help you enter the sacred and relaxing state that you are searching for.
iZen also helps you time your meditation session. It offers a convenient time setting feature that you can decide how much time to spend on meditation. By setting specific duration beforehand, you can allow your mind to focus on your session and not on how long you’ve been sitting there. Once the music ends, you simply end your session. Waiting for the music to end is a lot more pleasant than being jarred out of your meditation with an alarm
