Are you looking for a way to go beyond the simple basics of meditation, or how to take your practice deeper?
The benefits of a consistent meditation practice are well established – stress reduction, a less cluttered mind, improved focus and awareness, better immune function, more restful sleep, and insight into the habits that are limiting the realization of your true potential.
This online course offers a progressive combination of study and practice at your own pace, in the comfort of your own home, that will provide a strong foundation to experience the profound change that Zen meditation practice offers. Our Online Orientation to Zen Course has been created to help you develop a consistent and stable Zen practice, no matter where you are.
