Can we practice Zen while eating ? The answer is “ Absolutely yes !”. It might sound really weird doing something like a spiritual ceremony and chewing at the same time. Somebody can see Zen an act of sitting still, closing eyes and try to concentrate. In fact, it’s the basic form of Zen.
But don’t let the term confuse you, since the ultimate goal of practicing Zen is to achieve the inner peace. So, with that goal in mind, we can have so many kinds of so-called Zen. Aikido, for example, is sometimes called “ The Zen of Moving”.
