What is Heart Kyol Che?

Heart Kyol Che runs concurrently with the traditional in-person Kyol Che and is an opportunity for practitioners to participate by doing extra practice at home and online via Zoom. Where possible The Heart Kyol Che participant will join the online Heart Kyol Che practice for daily late morning, afternoon, and evening sitting meditation. Kong-an interviews are given offered twice weekly.
