Consciousness and Skill Worldwide
Cheng Hsin was founded by Peter Ralston in 1975 and is grounded in both the practical study of skillful interaction and the open-ended inquiry that contemplative disciplines offer. After making deep breakthroughs in Consciousness, Ralston entered and won the full-contact World Championships in China, becoming the first non-Asian ever to win that tournament.
His goal was to create powerful evidence for the effectiveness of what he has been teaching and sharing ever since--the unique body of work known as Cheng Hsin, which unifies the studies of consciousness with studies of mixed "internal" martial arts, effective interaction, skill and mastery.
Zen Consciousness directs our focus beyond the reality that we take for granted, while physical disciplines offer unique possibilities for grounding our consciousness in skillful interaction, providing feedback about our level of awareness and our ability to learn, which is applicable to a diverse range of activities.
The steady background objective is to learn about ourselves and life; to observe how our minds, emotions, and bodies currently operate; and to discover new, more effective and freeing possibilities in how to think, feel, move, and interact.
When we take on this consideration as a whole, we are speaking of the entire event in which we appear and live. To approach and study such a primary and inclusive consideration, we need a purposeful and multi-dimensional investigation, grounded in what is at hand and yet open to possibilities beyond our convictions and assumptions. This is the Cheng Hsin endeavor.
Each area and method of study or work of Cheng Hsin is designed to be an integral part of the whole investigation. Each empowers the others, allowing growth and breakthroughs in areas that are just not possible within only one limited concern, approach, or development.
