Meditation: The Three Dan Tiens
There are three main Dan Tiens or energy centres in the body, according to Traditional Chinese Medicine. In this exploration, participants in the workshop were first taken through an active breathing exercise to kickstart the body. For those of you listening, who did not attend this workshop, it would suffice to inhale into the belly, and upon the exhale, suck the navel in. We first go through the lower Dan Tien which is located about two finger widths (3 - 4 cms) below the navel, then we move up to the middle Dan Tien, (the heart centre), and up into the upper Dan Tien, which is referred to as the Crystal Palace or the Pineal Gland/Third Eye before moving into a state of expanded consciousness. A very powerful meditation.
