I am not a zennie, but I think this could be of interest to some of you and possibly help you. So enjoy.

Nice. I'm curious about the origins of Seung Sahn's breathing exercises.
Zen Master Seung Sahn's body was always giving him trouble, so this was something he came up with to help with that. It's not meant to be as heavy as chi kung or the like, although if you have a background in that, it is basically the same thing. Soen Yu is just a simple body, breath and mind relaxation exercise. I particularly like the "fix your body" one, where you roll your hands skyward.
