Zen meditation helps us to develop insight into the difficult problems in life and thereby gain true wisdom, clarity, and peace of mind. This is achieved not by external analysis but by focusing inward into our own minds. Often times, guidance from an expert is needed.
Chung Tai Zen Center of Houston offers the teaching of Zen meditation and Zen Buddhism throughout the year. In the meditation sessions, students are taught different methods of meditation including breath counting, mindfulness of the breathing, and middle way reality contemplation. The meditation hall can accommodate up to 100 participants, and the atmosphere is serene and conducive to quiet inner contemplation.
We offer free beginning, intermediate, and advanced meditation and Buddhism classes, as well as youth and children’s classes. Some of the topics covered in classes include: the History of Zen Buddhism, the Teachings of the Buddha, the Four Noble Truths, the Eightfold Path, Emptiness and the Middle Way, and the Principle of Causality.
The Coronavirus keeps rapidly spreading. In order to prevent any future outbreaks, all our events, including classes, will remain suspended until further notice.
We apologize in advance for the inconvenience but again your safety is our priority. During this time, and for your own protection our center will not be open to visitors.
Please stay tuned for further notices.
