These courses will be available starting December 2017. For details please contact us directly.

Chan Meditation training helps transforming an ordinary person by developing the internal environment, release the inner power and uncover the intellectual treasures. Nevertheless, we have to mention the tremendous benefits it has for the human longevity and overall health.

We wish you all the best of health and be happy!
