Hello, my name is Shana and I am the founder of "Chan Meditation in the Park" a group started in 2014 (www.chanmeditation.net). Our goal is to spread this powerful meditation experience to make more accessible to everyone. For the past 4 years, I have organized classes and didn't ask for any donations or support. My teacher taught me that I first need to take loss to help others. By practicing giving, along with meditation practice, I was able to improve myself, my business and become a better person. After seeing how Chan meditation can change people's lives, I want to open the doors for others to be a part of it.
I drive and fly to many cities and organize classes, to promote Chan Meditation because I saw how Chan meditation has transformed many people's lives and their loved ones. I have been donating my own time and money, but my own resources are limited. With your help, we can do much more and reach out to more people. Our meditation classes are designed to help everyone. We welcome all ages, levels and religions in all our classes.
The donations will be used to:
- Cover general expenses for space rental, gas, parking to organize community classes.
- Advertising, online positing, printing flyers and posters, online subscriptions.
- Small donations to temples who generously let us use their space.
- Donations to print more Chan Handbook (Meditation guide book).
If you are already practicing Chan and got much out of it, please support this program so we can continue to offer Chan meditation classes in various communities. If you have not come to our classes yet, you can support us so that we can make the world better through meditation! Chan is powerful and we see how people are changing very quickly through meditation practice. With proper teaching and guidance, meditation can help people become more patient and compassionate and become less angry, reduce their stress and anger/anxiety.
