Welcome to our tuition-free Online Zen School.
(Please note that you need to sign up for the Online Zen School AND enroll in courses to take classes.)
The Online Zen School aims to provide a structured and serious Zen learning and practicing environment to spread the Zen teaching throughout the entire world via the Internet, without the boundaries of physical Zen centers or countries, or the limitation of space and time.
Spreading out the Zen teaching globally is the lifetime mission of our Founding Masters, Shifu (i.e. master) Jeremy and Shifu Linda. When they received the Dharma Transmission from their Shifu, Zen Master Guoru, they were enjoined to not only carry on the lineage teaching but also distribute the lineage teaching worldwide. The enjoinment was taken seriously and rooted deeply in their mind from that point, and years later, they figured it out that the form of an online school is the way to bring the concept of global teaching to life.
On March 29, 2019, the Online Zen School was launched with two courses, ‘Basic Zen Concepts‘ and ‘Monk Boshan’s Advice for Investigating Zen‘ (which was replaced by Advanced Class in 2020 ), as a soft opening of the global teaching, to celebrate the 9th anniversary that our Shifu Jeremy and Shifu Linda met their Shifu, Zen Master Guoru. One year later on March 29, 2020, to celebrate the 10th anniversary, we launched the online version of Beginner’s Zen Class and Bridging Class, and Advanced Class. The idea is to provide the structured Zen classes and help practitioners build up their regular meditation habit as we do in our physical Zen centers; the purpose is to lead practitioners to advance their Zen practice in order to uncover the nature of self, which is the same, core, and only purpose of Zen meditation, that we share in the None Zen Center.
Just like all the Zen classes provided by None Zen Center, the Online Zen School is tuition-free.
