Taking a New Path in Life

Getting started with a Zen practice is one of the most beneficial things a person can do to begin straightening out their life. Zen addresses the big questions and the small ones, too. Realization of the basic principles of the Buddhist world view, and putting them to work through a regular meditation practice, leads to a more skillful way of dealing with day-to-day life with family, friends, neighbors, co-workers and the world at large. The Zen practitioner moves through life's ups and downs smoothly with Equanimity, Wisdom and Compassion in balance.

For the person new to Zen, learning Buddhist principles and practices can seem like a mysteriously shrouded wilderness. We're presented with 2,500 years of Buddhist history, culture and literature, filled with foreign words, unfamiliar concepts, and Eastern style ceremonies and dress. It doesn't seem like it's really suited to the stresses and strains of modern western life and culture.

And yet, it is! Once the veneer of Eastern culture is peeled away, the core teachings and practices of Buddhism are seen to be completely relevant and helpful. We teach Westerners in a Western way.

We're here to help you begin to bring the tried and true lessons of Zen Buddhism into your life and let it flower, so that you can lead your life in a new and less stressful way without Fear and Anxiety. Yes, it takes a little effort and commitment but what good thing doesn't?

Introduction to Zen Classes

Our Introduction to Zen classes are presented by our highly qualified and experienced Zen Teachers. They are taught in plain English with a minimum of Zen Buddhist jargon. Common Zen terms that do come up, like Dharma, Karma, Sangha, and others are explained thoroughly.

The classes begin with basic discussion of Zen principles and practices, and our teachers will connect the dots to how these things work in ordinary day to day life. The goal is to establish a familiarity with the practical elements of Zen that will help you navigate the busy, complicated and many times confusing life in the West.

We will also recommend reading materials, and refer you to videos in our Media Archive that you can study on your own between classes.

Conducted via Zoom Video Conference, the classes are held once a week on Saturdays from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM (US Mountain Time). After you register you will be sent your Zoom links and other notifications automatically each week.

Introduction to Zen classes are offered in monthly packages of 4 classes for a tuition of $200.

Introduction to Zen Classes are already included in all our Membership Levels, Student, Student Plus, and Active Student. These Members do not have to register here and will be sent all Zoom links and notifications automatically.
