Just keep breathing in and out like this. Don't be interested in anything else. It doesn't matter even if someone is standing on their head with their ass in the air. Don't pay it any attention. Just stay with the in-breath and the out-breath. Concentrate your awareness on the breath. Just keep doing it. http://www.ajahnchah.org/book/Just_Do_It_1_2.php

It almost certainly isnt. Or rather it is predictable that a discussion of Sunyata in the General Theravada forum will eventually be problematic. Sunnata and Sunyata differ in more than their respective lingustic derivations.
If it is really Sunyata that you are contemplating Convivium you might be better putting your question to Dharma Wheel.

or how does it relate to jhanas or arupa jhanas?
