Regular Practice

Su Bong Zen Monastery provides Zen teaching and training through formal practice and together action in everyday life. Our community consists of lay students and monastics practicing together. The Zen center offers programs for beginners, precept students, residential training, novice and monastic training.

Formal practice consists of sitting and walking meditation, bowing, chanting and kong-an interviews. Programs are offered through daily practice, monthly and long-term retreats and events such as workshops and Dharma talks. Additional programs in work and volunteer training and community-building activities support our practice.
