We will start to provide real-time Zoom classes for our daylong (half-day) from Feb 6, 2021. You may find the class calendar below.
Be healthy and stay safe. We look forward to meeting you soon at our San Jose Center.
None Zen Center
Daylong Retreats are designed for students in the Training Class and Disciple Program, and aim to deepen students’ Zen experience by increasing the frequency and duration of sitting sessions. Daylong class is conducted on the third week’s Advanced Class, on Saturdays at 9am–3pm. We provide this monthly Daylong Class as a checkpoint for students to check their progress for that month.
Annual Retreat is an intensive training to help people deepen their Zen experiences, break through the forms of duality, and see the true nature of self within a set time period. Each year, we provide annual 5-or-more-day Zen Retreats for students in the Advanced Class and Disciple Program.
The Daylong and Annual Retreats are designed for students in our Advanced Class and Disciple Program, but we do reserve 1–2 seats for practitioners who are interested in joining us.
We will be practicing the Zen technique of doubting meditation (Chn. huatou, Jpn. wato, Krn. hwadu) in the monthly Daylong and Annul Retreats. Practitioners who are not familiar with doubting meditation will be required to take a Bridging Class in advance. If you are interested in our Bridging Class, please feel free to contact us at email@example.com.
We provide vegetarian meals in Daylong and Annual Retreats. Annual Retreat participants will be required to pay for the retreat fees (mainly board and lodging expenses), however, all classes provided by the None Zen Center are tuition-free. We do ask that you consider providing a donation. Your gifts make it possible for us to keep the None Zen Center operating, and for people to learn and practice Zen continuously.
You may give the gift at the Center or donate online.
* Prior registration is a must. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in joining our Daylong Classes and Zen Retreats.
