Sitting meditation is as simple as sitting and thinking of nothing, although many students find they cannot even sit free of thoughts for more than 30 seconds. In Shaolin Wahnam, most students perform standing meditation, also known as Wuji stance. It is easier for people to be relaxed and calm their mind in standing meditation.
In addition, standing meditation caters to a more active lifestyle of having a job, taking care of a family, maintaining good health, and fully enjoying life. The only prerequisite that is asked of students before they practice Zen meditation is to empty their cup and enjoy themselves. Meditation also vastly improves the practices of Qigong and Kung fu.
