The ancient practice of Zen mediation aims at deeply understanding oneself and being completely mindful, receptive, and present in the moment. In this four week course, you will be introduced to Zen mediation and the Zen teachings of keeping a beginners “Don’t Know Mind.” Through sitting and walking meditation, instructional in-class readings (or Dharma talks), and Kong-an practice, you will learn to connect with the beginners mind of compassionate awareness.

Zen Master Bon Haeng is a Dharma heir to Korean Zen Master Seung Sahn, the 78th Patriarch in his line of transmission in the Chogye order of Korean Buddhism, and founder of the Kwan Um School of Zen.
