Instructor: Shana Han
Shana Han is the founder and CEO of Hansderma, Inc. She has successfully established her business on her own after moving to the United States in her late 20s. She is now a frequent speaker and meditation instructor at various conferences and expos. For the past years, Shana has dedicated her time to practice Chan Meditation and Mahayana Buddhism in order to overcome her personal struggles. Because she got so much out of this practice, she decided to share this wonderful experience with others. With her teacher’s help, Dharma Master YongHua, she started to teach Chan Meditation.

Dharma Master YongHua
Dharma Master YongHua, was born in South Vietnam in 1955 and came to the US for college in 1974. He earned his BA in Mathematics from the University of Minnesota and an MBA from the University of Chicago in 1982. After becoming a top level executive, he became disenchanted with the corporate life and grew weary of the worldly life. In 1995, he decided to leave the home life under Great Master Hsuan Hua and stayed in City of Ten Thousand Buddhas for four years. After becoming a fully ordained monk, Master went to Taiwan to learn Chinese and precepts. Two years later, he came back to the US and practiced in seclusion abode. A few years later, a temple was offered to him. Therefore, he started teaching Chan and Pure Land in parallel.

What is Chan?
Chan is a central practice of Mahayana Buddhism. Chan is a word originated from the Sanskrit word Dhyana. It means "concentration", "stillness contemplation" or "thought cultivation". We follow Chinese tradition of Wei Yang lineage, the oldest of five Chan schools which was transmitted by Grand Dharma Master Hsuan Hua. Chan spread south to Vietnam as Thien and east to Korea as Seon, and, in the 13th century, to Japan, where it became known as Zen. We follow Chinese tradition of Wei Yang lineage, the oldest of five Chan schools which was transmitted by Grand Dharma Master Hsuan Hua.
