To do our part supporting a safe and healthy community from the high effect of COVID-19, we have cancelled all in-person Zen classes and monthly retreats in our San Jose, California (USA) and Manchester (UK) centers as of Saturday March 14th, until further notice.
We hope you may have some Zen at home during this practicing-social-distancing period. Just sign up for the Online Zen School AND enroll in the course, you then can join the meditation class while practicing social distancing.
Bridging Class, Manchester
Sign Up for the Bridging Class!
The Bridging Class is a 3-session course to help students who have completed the Beginner’s Class in the Center (or who have learned meditation before but want to learn a new meditation skill) to get familiar with the Zen technique of Doubting Meditation (Chn. huatou, Jpn. wato, Krn. hwadu), a traditional Zen method which has been widely applied and proven to lead people to enlightenment. The class meets on Wednesdays 6:45pm – 7:30pm. Online registration is required. Please note that we do not accept walk-in students.
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 £30 donation for the three session Bridging Class, 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.
Classes will be held on the following dates:
Please arrive five minutes early to get yourself ready for the class. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
