This "Meditation How-To from a Bodyworker-Zen Monk" is the beginnings of a book that was started 12 years ago while I lived at Zen Center of Los Angeles. A major part to be added will explain to meditators how their body structure is put together, how its tightness specifically limits their abilities to sit in certain positions, and how that tightness also limits their abilities to breathe, create concentration breath energy and keep centered.
The book will also include, of course, how to stretch effectively, and why to get Structural Integration Bodywork to improve their condition very significantly, and rather quickly.
