“FORM” is meditation movement and it works on many levels. First, FORM is like a mold that enables one to reproduce a masterpiece, or to be a pattern for one’s life such as ‘putting on the character of Christ’. We can also follow the FORM of physicality in Pilates, Traditional Chinese Exercise, or just simply by being free form. FORM can be an embodiment of prayer and is similar to rotating meditative thoughts through one’s mind. Fluid physical movement and steady breathing become rotational if practiced consistently. Ultimately, FORM is all about spiritual formation and to “be transformed by the renewing of your mind” (Romans 12:2). It is important that FORM not become too rigid or dogmatic, thus, I encourage students to create their own FORM of meditation movement practice.
