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.
