WHAT IS THIS?
Sesshin are full color 12″ x 18″ meditation posters that combine meditation and a subtle but powerful technique called Low Attention Processing Model. Sesshin may be helpful in reducing stress and developing good habits effortlessly.1
HOW DO SESSHIN MEDITATION POSTERS WORK?
Each Sesshin poster contains an insight or positive suggestion. When looking directly at it for a sustained period of time, the words appear almost completely transparent, thereby making it hard to read. Your conscious mind becomes preoccupied with the image while the positive suggestion imprints directly to the unconscious mind.
With a suspension of critical faculties,3 selective thinking can be established, allowing for accelerated change and improvement.
Sesshin meditation posters do not require your attention for them to work though. Simply display them in your home or work environment within visual range and you can enjoy the benefits.
ARE SESSION MEDITATION POSTERS SUBLIMINAL?
Not quite. Information on Sesshin images are not transmitted subliminally but supraliminally,4 which is the opposite of subliminal. With Sesshin meditation posters, you see the words, but because they are difficult to read they are easy to ignore. The words become “hidden in plain sight”,5 thereby circumventing the conscious mind.
HOW DO I USE SESSHIN MEDITATION POSTERS?
Sesshin can be used in two ways, as a visual accent to your living space and as a focal point in your meditation routine.
To use Sesshin as a meditation tool, simply look at the image without thinking. Let Sesshin do the work.
For low influence processing , display a Sesshin meditation poster in a prominent place in your home or work environment. As you go about your day, its silent powers of persuasion will help instill the attitude you need to succeed.
