Welcome to Our Site


The official website of the Zen Mind-Body System.

Meditation is one of the most natural and rewarding of all human activities. It gives direct, intuitive experience of higher realities, and is the cornerstone of true spirituality. It also brings balance, rest, and a growing inner peace. While its highest and original purpose is to help us awaken our inner spiritual nature, the benefits to body and mind are well established by medical research.

Zen Mind-Body Meditation System is a discovery of you, that which is already perfect and free. Our meditation classes are taught without religious affiliation. You will learn concentration and focus, which can lead an individual to a level of excellence in all aspects of life, including school, career, personal relationships, and happiness. 


Joining the Zen Mind-Body class will enable you to touch and experience the profound peace and sense of well being that is available to all who choose to go within to find "it." When practiced on a daily basis,  Zen Mind-Body meditation can produce profound results on all levels of your being—physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. It connects you with your own inner powers of vitality, clarity, and love.


In just a few weeks, you can experience the benefits of meditation in your life—inner peace, health, and spiritual awakening. Classes are taught by Grandmaster Jessie Bowen, founder of the Zen Mind-Body System. He is a 9th Degree Black Belt in karate, has been practicing and teaching meditation for over 30 years, and has authored numerous books and audio products.


The Zen Mind-Body Meditation Program is taught at Duke University as a physical education credit class. Students learn to use meditation to relieve stress, improve memory and concentration, and gain control of their mind, body, and emotions.


Whether you are interested in managing stress or in exploring the spiritual side of meditation, you will feel welcome. Small classes and experienced instructors provide a quality learning environment, with time for individual questions and in-depth exploration.

Special Tips

Are you looking to harness the full power of meditation in your life?


We’re sure you’re aware of the benefits of this time-tested and scientifically proven practice -yet for one reason or another, you can’t get meditation to work for you as well as you’d like.


Maybe you’ve heard of meditation, but never really bothered about it (until now). Maybe you’ve tried to meditate, but don’t really understand it. Or maybe you’ve been doing meditation for years—but it’s not as easy or effective as you want it to be.
