Heart Mind as One: All forms of Sheng Zhen Meditation help open the heart to experience the power of love, but each form has its own flavor.  Heart Mind as One, which is a standing form involving eleven movements/held positions and associated contemplations, cultivates inner peace and stillness.

The eleven movements of Heart Mind as One calm the disposition, harmonize the qi and bring balance to the body. Inner stillness brings you back to the original purity of the heart, and worries vanish.All levels welcome.

Heaven Earth Heart Mantra: The sixteen movements of Heaven Earth are a beautiful, graceful meditation practiced in a sitting position.. 

These movements and their associated contemplations nourish the heart and are meant to elevate your consciousness to the transcendent realms, bringing a state of bliss.  While beautiful to behold or practice, the movements also have deep and mystical meanings.
