Cheng Hsin Consciousness
To be conscious means to be aware or to be awake. In Cheng Hsin, "consciousness work" is about increasing consciousness. It is a practice which is non-religious, non-sectarian and non-dogmatic.
To increase consciousness is to be aware of something that you were previously unaware of. We could call all of the Cheng Hsin endeavour as consciousness work. In Cheng Hsin Martial Arts and Body-Being we train to become conscious of and align with certain principles of design, nature and interaction. However, the work of Cheng Hsin also includes two other disciplines: ontology, which examines how we experience everyday life and contemplation, which is asking oneself a specific question until a big insight is achieved.
