The Zen Buddhist Temple of Chicago is the oldest continuously practicing Zen temple in the United States. Its training emphasizes the interplay between Buddhist and Taoist spiritual practices—Tai Chi Chuan and the Chinese Health Methods. In addition to his thirty-five years of experience in Japanese Buddhism, the Rev. Kongo Langlois-Roshi has trained for over three decades in Taoist martial arts and other Chinese traditions. As successor to Professor Huo Chi Kwang, he serves as director of the Chinese Cultural Academy. Our goal is to assist those who would be self-confident, self-responsible, and truly independent. address: 865 Bittersweet, Northbrook, IL 60062 phone: (847) 869-0554 e-mail: s_ericksen@interramp. com lineage: Japanese Soto Zen spiritual head: Rev.
