Special events were held twice a year in the past.  Experienced monastic teachers were invited from Chan Meditation Center in New York to give Dharma talks and guidance in Chan meditation practice.  People from all walks of life came to practice Chan to deepen their understanding of themselves and learn to live in harmony with their families, friends and others in the community.
