US-China Chan Cultural Exchange Association (Chan Association) was founded on January 1st, 2011 in Boston, MA. Over the years, we have expanded to have branches in Massachusetts, Connecticut, California, USA, and in Beijing, Hangzhou, Guangzhou, and Wuyi Mountain, China. The Association’s objective is to promote a healthy life style using wisdoms from the Eastern cultures on how to balance body, mind and spirit. We are interested in the spiritual growth of all, especially through learning the essential qualities of both Eastern and Western cultures. We believe one can greatly benefit from combining the openness and peacefulness of the Eastern cultures, and the liveliness and the free spirit of the Western cultures.
Since it was founded, the Association has provided many activities to its members and to the public, such as weekly meditation, short-term meditation retreats, weekly Tao De Jing study, online Buddhist sutras study, online reading group, workshops, Tai Chi classes, tea ceremonies, natural healing practices, and free traditional Chinese medicine diagnosis.
We invite you to join us, becoming a member, and working with us to promote cultural exchange. Our membership is free for individuals. Institution sponsors: please contact us for details.
We are a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization recognized by IRS (EIN: 27-3926161). All donations made to the Association are tax-deductible in the U.S. to the extent allowed by law.
