In your Zazen instruction video you say We receive the sky's chi the sky's energy through the top of our heads and pull up the earth's chi the earth's energy from below and these two unite in the lower abdomen. Should there be a conscious intention to pull energy from up and down to the center?

The energy gatheres naturally once we align our body. The spine is straight, our lower back tucked in, the head stretching up to the heavens. This is the truth of zazen, and from there the gathering of energy naturally occurs. 

Due to Roshi's busy schedule this year, we are currently not accepting any new questions at this time
