We have launched a new beginner's Chan meditation class, which will start at 8:45am on Saturdays. This class teaches the fundamentals of Chan Buddhist meditation, as taught by Dharma Master YongHua, who has trained as a Buddhist monk for 20 years. This is a rare opportunity to learn from a Master of Chan meditation.
Chan is more rigourous than most types of meditation currently taught in the US. But if you are willing to work hard, you can experience far more dramatic benefits. If you practice daily for 2-3 months, you should see noticeable improvements:
• Reduce stress
• Increase concentration
• Improve physical & mental health
• Lead a happier, more peaceful life
• Restore balance & harmony
• Develop wisdom and compassion
Please RSVP if you would like to attend. The schedule is:
08:45 - 09:30am: Introduction to Chan with Master XianJie
09:30 - 10:00am: Meditation Sit
10:00 - 11:00am: Lecture and Q&A with Dharma Master YongHua
11:00 - 11:45am: Vegetarian Lunch
Once you have learned the basics, then you can skip the beginning class and join the full one hour sit that takes place from 9-10am.
All programs are donation based. For more information, please contact us through meetup or call: (626) 280-8801.
(Note that most regulars who attend do not RSVP here, so that is why it looks on meetup like no one is coming).
