Advanced Class, Taiwan
The Advanced Class is designed for practitioners who are dedicated to advancing their Zen practice to uncover the nature of self.
The Advanced Class is an ongoing 3-session course. The first two weeks’ classes meet at 9am–9:45am on Saturdays, and the 3rd week’s class is a monthly daylong class on Sundays from 9am–4 pm. Students will read Zen doctrines to build up the right view (correct concepts) of Zen and Zen meditation, to ensure they are working on the right track of Zen meditation. During 2019 – 2020, Shifu (Teacher/Master) Linda or Shifu Jeremy will guide practitioners through two to four sections of the Zen doctrine “Monk Boshan’s Advice for Investigating Zen” in this weekly class.
Students in the Advanced Class are required to attend the monthly daylong retreat and semiannual 2-day retreats, and highly recommended to attend the annual 5-or-more-days retreats. Students are also required to participate in the Center’s events and the Center’s operating jobs.
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 NT$1,000 donation for each set of the three-session Advanced Class provided in our Taipei Center, but donations of greater and lesser sums are all appreciated. No one will be turned away.
Please feel free to contact us if you are interested in joining the Advanced Class or Disciple Program.
