First Step: Relaxation and preparation
Adopt the Sieza meditation position, which is kneeling with a straight back and palms resting on the thighs. Kneeling may not be the most comfortable position for everyone – sitting in a chair is also ok, or use any standard meditation posture – Meditation Postures.
Close your eyes and take some deep breaths. Focus on the tanden, just below the navel. When the mind is clear, move to the next step.
