I only wish I lived closer to the city so that I could visit this group more often! The atmosphere is relaxed but purposeful; the people genuine. Classes offered here serve to cultivate that from which anyone can obtain profound benefit.

Training at Chozen-ji Illinois Betsuin has helped me define and cut right to the core of what is most important in life. You have to row the boat yourself, but a lighthouse aids in direction.
