Channeling our inner Buddha, come see!
Zen Buddhists design, create and maintain Zen gardens to encourage mindfulness, as a method of meditation. These gardens consist of sand, stones, plants and water and were originally found in Zen monasteries all across the Asian continent.
The year 9 students designed their own Zen gardens and spent time building them while listening to relaxing music. They then destroyed them at the end of the lesson, following another Buddhist belief of impermanence – nothing lasts for ever.
Namaste and Alavida!
