specialty : double spiral layout to express mandala and sound form
We used wireless sensor networks, and audio feedback (natural sounds and brahma music) to guide participants to do walking meditation as they engage in walking zen_Circle (the shape of two embedded spirals). People can walk and think (or meditate) and adjust the pace to relax in movement, and experience the benef its of dynamic Zen.
Two modes : Jinxing mode, Paoxiang Mode
Supporting a single participant for slow walking with specif ic posture suggestions.
Zen_Circle has five sensor nodes. The sensor nodes detect whenever a participant is passing and the speakers play the sound of bird song , dry leaves , insects , rushing water.
If the participant pause and meditate in the center of the circle longer than ten seconds, all speakers play synchronized brahma music (emptiness)
Paoxiang advanced mode:
is a more advanced mode to let people who have had Jingxing experience to practice.
Supports multiple participants in meditative walking practice.
The central node generates random different sounds to direct people in paoxiang practice: slow walking, fast walking, and pausing.
