Zen Practice & Meditation Workshop
 
  • Regular Class Dates
  • Private Class/Event Price
 
The Live Zen Center is dedicated to the study and practice of Zen (or called Chan in China) - a combination of Han Chinese, Tibetan and South-east Asian meditation practices - for lay students, and people who wish to mature their understanding of life.

Book an afternoon or evening of Zen workshop with us to gain insight into the teachings and practices of Live Zen. A practicing Buddhist layman will guide you on your journey of self-discovery, and a real Zen Buddhist monk will occasionally stop by as well. Not only will you learn about Zen (Chan in Chinese) through its music, its stories, its art, its rituals and its martial arts, but you'll also grow to understand and appreciate the challenges and rewards of Zen meditation.

*Meditation sessions will be supplemented by discussion of Zen (Chan) philosophy; you'll learn how to apply Zen (Chan) principles to enrich your daily life with tranquility.
* In keeping with the meaning of Zen(Chan)-"learning through meditation"- each workshop will consist of long sitting and walking meditation sessions as well as discussion. Our Buddhist guide will teach you proper meditation techniques, and a Zen environment of music, candles and incense will calm your mind and soothe your soul.

About the Master
Paul Wang, a layman Buddhist practitioner, has studied and practiced Zen for over ten years, and has been teaching Zen meditation at the Live Zen Center (operated by the China Culture Center) for over five years. He started and benefited a lot from South-east Asian Insight Meditation according to the lineage of venerable Mahasi Sayadaw, and received the Zen teaching from venerable Master XingPo, who is one of the head master of CaoXi school, and take the lineage of Tibetan Buddhism from venerable Master GaZang, who is the head master of one of the most important Tibetan Temples. Through continuous practicing and teaching, he gradually worked out a set of practical methods on mediation by combining these three systems.
