2014 Chan Meditation Workshop a Big Success

On Saturday, November 8, our friends at the Dharma Drum Mountain Chan Meditation Center once again visited Malee’s School for a half-day workshop on the basics of sitting and walking Chan (Zen) meditation. It was a great turnout this year, with almost 40 people in attendance.

We were honored to have Chang Wen Fashi give a talk and lessons to our students, friends, and guests. Thanks go to Fashi as well as everyone at Chan Meditation Center who helped organize the workshop, including especially our contact Lingyun Wang, and who provided us with a delicious vegetarian lunch as always.
