Young Urban Zen: The Wholehearted Way of Meditation is a 10 week course guiding students through meditative practices offered through Two Arrows Zen for those 40 years of age or younger. Our vision is to provide accessible, warm, and inviting programming that is relevant and appeals to a younger generation through highly experiential, community based, and practical online sessions on Zen meditation and practice. Classes will dynamically combine guided meditation practice, group awareness work, and small group discussions. 

This course is for those students who are seeking a community of like minded practitioners interested in practices that help them be more present, available, and wholehearted to the complexities of their lives and our collective experience in these pandemic times. 

The 10-week segment of Young Urban Zen: The Wholehearted Way of Meditation includes: 

  • 10 weeks of instruction and practice with Alana Anyo Felt and Gabriel Kaigen Wilson.
  • Video recording access of all class sessions.

Required reading: Inside of the Grass Hut, by Ben Connelly

10-week course – Segment 5 of Young Urban Zen
Individual enrollment: $150.00

If you intend to enroll, then please make a firm commitment to participate fully in all the classes, and be intentional about those you may need to miss because of work or other life events. We value creating a connected community space so we’ll request your cameras be on during our class time. Please respect the container of the virtual environment just as much as you would if we were in the same physical room together. 


The Young Urban Zen year-long series is facilitated by:

Alana Anyo Felt has been a student of Diane Musho Hamilton Roshi at Two Arrows Zen since 2011. As an ordained monk, she weaves Zen insight into her work as a leadership coach and integral facilitator. Alana is currently supporting clients in both grief work and/or through life transitions. She is passionate about helping people explore their relationship to loss and change, through which clients deepen their emotional and embodied wisdom, hear the truth of their hearts, and find strength and meaning in the face of pain and loss.

Gabriel Kaigen Wilson is a Zen practitioner at Two Arrows Zen and was ordained as a monk by Diane Musho Hamilton Roshi. Out in the world, he is a leadership coach and organizational consultant, with a specialty in diversity and inclusion efforts, and a co-author of Compassionate Conversations: How to Speak and Listen from the Heart. Through his work, Freedom and Fairness, Gabe takes purpose driven organizations to the intersection of social justice, design thinking, human psychology and group dynamics in service of supporting them in creating cultures of greater equity, diversity, and inclusion.
