Laughing Buddha Zen (LBZ) trains you to use Zen Koans to enhance your spiritual practice – whether your practice is Buddhist or not. It focuses on using koans in dealing with stresses from family, work, and other relationships – from love relationships to our relations with society and the environment. LBZ uses relaxed forms of the Zen tradition, but does not require a commitment to that tradition or to the Koan Practice Trainer. The Trainer acts as a facilitator in a peer process in which the koan itself does the training. A small-group setting encourages collaborative discussions in a supportive atmosphere. Both humor and the honest expression of emotional challenges are welcomed. See for more information.
