Zen Training

Engaging the Ever Intimate

When an individual comes to explore practice at any of the Zen Garland Order Centers, we help them identify their needs and aspirations. We then work with them to develop a practice routine that fits their needs, time, and interests. There are different levels of involvement, practices, and a variety of paths available. A personal training regimen emerges over time.

Some come to Zen to find inner peace and relief from stress, conflict, and grief. Others come hungering for an intimate connection to the sacred and a meaningful way to engage daily life – work, family, community, and social issues. The caring and skilled Teachers and staff at our Zen Garland Order centers are well prepared to address these aspirations with private, personal guidance and our holistic and individualized approach to spiritual practice, drawing on our seven Core Practices.
