Studying the Way

Traditional Zen training has at its heart the teacher student relationship. Sensei An is currently developing training specific to the different ways students wish to manifest within the Sangha. It is possible to simply come sit (as a guest student) and to meet with the teacher individually by request. Formal students are those who feel a particular commitment to SZC as their home Sangha and who are studying the way with its resident teacher. Senior students are designated as having sufficient training and commitment to fill in leadership roles. Distance students join the Sangha at least once annually for formal practice and study intensively with the teacher by phone or skype. All of these roles are open to everyone.
