Step into the realm of "The Compass of Zen: A Korean Lineage Tradition," an enriching course guided by Zen Master Jeong Ji, also known as Anita Feng, of the Blue Heron Zen Community. This course invites participants on a journey through the lineage tradition of Korean Zen, as it manifests in the West today.

Korean Zen is distinct in its features and practices, notably its use of kong-an (koan) training, which diverges in approach and style from the Japanese tradition. Yet at the heart of Korean Zen lies the timeless practice of meditation. Throughout the course, we will delve into the core techniques and unique cultural styles that characterize Korean Zen.

One of the key components of Korean Zen, as brought to the West by Zen Master Seung Sahn, is the Compass of Zen teaching. This illuminating teaching brings clarity to the various territories of the mind in a deeply accessible manner. Alongside an exploration of this central teaching, we'll also take a preliminary look at kong-ans, discussing how this form of one-on-one engagement is evolving to remain relevant in the 21st century.
