What is Chan? Chan is a central practice of Mahayana Buddhism. Chan is a word originated from the Sanskrit word Dhyana. It means "concentration", "stillness contemplation" or "thought cultivation". We follow Chinese tradition of Wei Yang lineage, the oldest of five Chan schools which was transmitted by Grand Dharma Master Hsuan Hua (宣化 上人). Chan spread south to Vietnam as Thien and east to Korea as Seon, and, in the 13th century, to Japan, where it became known as Zen

Instructor: Shana Han is the founder and president of Hansderma, Inc. and the creator of HanSkincare brand. She has successfully established her business on her own after moving to the United States in her late 20s. As an undergraduate in microbial engineering and business, she was already well established her experience and expertise in pharmaceutical, medical device, biotechnology, aesthetics and cosmetic industry. She is now a frequent speaker and meditation instructor at various conferences and expos.  For the past years, Shana has dedicated her time to practice Chan Meditation and Mahayana Buddhism in order to overcome her personal struggles.
