Chan Center is a registered non-profit education organization operating in California under the IRS code 501(C)3 since the year 2000.
Initially, we began with only one teacher from Taiwan Chan Educational Foundation and two students from Los Angeles. We have since conducted numerous activities with the support of a team of volunteers and reciprocating instructors.
Taiwan Chan Educational Foundation was founded by Chan Master Teacher Wu Jue Miao Tian in 1988 with the mission to have everyone live a life of health, harmony and happiness.
There are presently more than thirty Chan centers and several other facilities throughout Taiwan offering courses in Chan practice to people of all religions and vocations in society.
Over 100,000 fellow practitioners have benefited from the teachings of Chan Master Teacher.
In addition to these Chan centers, we have also established over one hundred Chan clubs in different private and public organizations, including major corporations, schools and universities, government agencies and community centers.
Chan classes are also offered in several other countries, among them the U.S., Canada, New Zealand and mainland China.
