This is an entry level program for those who have no prior or little experience in spirituality or Zen meditation.
It is very important to understand that Zen is not just meditation per se, but rather a process of uncovering unconscious habits, patterns and ways of seeing our life. We call it "Zen Realization". This is extremely difficult, if not impossible, to accomplish this without a master, since the teacher helps us to explore what we normally are not aware of.
Starting at Lincoln Zen Center is a way to progress and deepen this spiritual experience. Alternatively, you can enroll in a certificate program at Meister Eckhart Divinity School for additional credentials. This program also includes a Christian Zen focus.
