The None Zen Center aims to provide Zen meditation environments in convenient downtown locations for nine-to-fivers to practice Zen meditation seriously and continuously, to advance their Zen practice, and to see the nature of self (or to reach enlightenment.)
Our Manchester Meetup in the UK, commencing in February 2020, is located in the heart of Manchester city centre, at the Friends Meeting House, next to the central library and town hall. We provide tuition-free meditation classes for Zen beginners, as well as for experienced practitioners.
All classes provided by None Zen Center are tuition-free, but we do ask that you consider providing a donation. Your gifts make it possible for us to keep the Center operating and provide a place for people to learn and practice Zen continuously.
You may find the structured classes we provided in Manchester Meeup below. If you have any inquires, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
