Daylong and Retreat, San Jose
Daylong Classes 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 Training Class, on Saturdays at 9am–3pm. We provide this monthly Daylong Class as a checkpoint for students to check their progress for that month.
A Zen 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 Training Class and Disciple Program.
The Daylong Class and Zen Retreats are designed for students in our Training Class and Disciple Program, but we do reserve 1–2 seats for practitioners who are interested in joining us. For details, please feel free to contact us at email@example.com
We will be practicing the Zen technique of doubting meditation (Chn. huatou, Jpn. wato, Krn. hwadu) in the monthly Daylong Classes and Zen 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
We provide vegetarian meals in Daylong Classes and Zen Retreats. 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 free of charge. 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 email@example.com if you are interested in joining our Daylong Classes and Zen Retreats.
