Zen teacher Thich Thien Tri will be leading this course. He graduated from Vietnamese Buddhist Association with a Bachelor of Arts in Buddhism. He began his journey in America in 2002 and has taught in many cities in the US. In July 2015, he was invited by Van Hanh Buddhist Center of New Orleans to establish the ‘Zen and Mind Family’ in order to teach how meditation benefits our lives, spiritually, emotionally and physically.

This course is progressive, each class building on the previous class. You will learn sitting, standing, and walking meditation practices. You will study how to chant, the Mani mantra, the Six Senses and the Object of Six Senses, and the Four Noble Truths. Students who successfully complete the course will receive a certificate and graduate to the next level.
