We all want to be happy and avoid suffering. But suffering is not the enemy of happiness. Looking deeply into suffering, we see in it the way to happiness. And looking deeply into happiness, we see in it the way to end suffering. Happiness and suffering are two sides of the same coin. They are equal and can show us how to attain peace and freedom.

A 16-day intensive course led by Zen master Cuong Lu
Our planet of 8 billion people and countless other species is in peril. It will take the wisdom of a million wisdom-keepers for our species to survive. A No Word Zen monk can inspire each person they encounter to join together in wisdom and skillful means to stop the many crises we face today, including global climate, which we humans continue to worsen with our emissions, plastics, and so many other pollutants to the air, land, and sea.
Cuong Lu is a lineage holder in an uninterrupted line, transmitted to him by Ven. Thich Nhat Hanh. He trained as a monastic at Plum Village, and he is now training invisible monastics to bring wisdom and compassion to the world through mindfulness and activism, creating a peaceful revolution.
An invisible monastic is always practicing. Every moment is an opportunity to be deeply present and share your wisdom and compassion invisibly, without drawing attention to yourself. This is a way of cultivating peace within and well-being in society.
It’s not the robes that make the monk. It’s wisdom that makes you a peaceful person. The No Word Zen movement is a seed, which when watered, will grow a million compassionate flowers engaged to help all who are suffering.
This course will be tailored to the needs of each student.
