Due to the current COVID situation, we have decided to cancel all Zen classes and monthly retreats in our Manchester (UK) center again, as of Tuesday, October 27th, until further notice.
We hope you may have some Zen at home, especially during this difficult time. Enroll in our Online Zen School AND the Beginner’s and Bridging Class to learn the basic Zen concepts and meditation methods. After that, take the Advanced Class to advance your Zen practice, know yourself better, and uncover your self-nature.
Be healthy and stay safe. We look forward to meeting you at our Manchester Center soon.
None Zen Center
The Advanced Class is an ongoing 6-session course series designed for practitioners who are dedicated to advancing their Zen practice.
Each course of the series consists of three lecture classes and three sitting meditation sessions. The lecture classes are online real-time classes meeting on Wednesdays 9:30pm – 10:15 pm. Shifu (Teacher/Master) Linda or Shifu Jeremy will lead practitioners through Zen doctrines to build up the right view (correct concepts) of Zen and Zen meditation, to ensure that practitioners are working on the right track of Zen meditation.
The first two sitting meditation sessions are held on Saturdays 10:30 am – 11:15 pm, and the 3rd session is originally a monthly daylong retreat, but now a half-day retreat on Saturdays 10:30 am – 12:30 pm amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Most of the sitting sessions are outdoor meditation classes, as long as the weather/condition allows.
The Advanced Class is an ongoing course. Students are highly recommended to take the course continuously to advance their Zen practice. After learning and practicing Zen meditation in the center for six months, students may apply for discipleship and join the Disciple Training program.
We provide tuition-free meditation classes, but we do ask that you consider providing a donation. The None Zen Center is run entirely by donations. It is the loving gifts from our teachers, students, and friends which create a tuition-free learning environment for Zen meditation, and so will your generosity surely pass on the same love to others.
We recommend a £40 donation for each set of the three-session Advanced Class provided in our Manchester Meetup (UK), but donations of greater and lesser sums are all appreciated. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
You may give the gift at the Center when you attend the class.
Please feel free to contact us at email@example.com if you are interested in attending the Advanced Class or Disciple Program.
