Membership

As a member of Stone Creek Zen Center, you have the opportunity to…

Deepen your practice
Stone Creek Zen Center supports your practice as you sit zazen, study Dharma with teachers, and connect with other practitioners. It provides a container for your practice and a resource for anyone who wants to hear the Dharma.

With your support, Stone Creek offers online zazen and service every weekday, weekly Dharma talks, monthly practice days, periodic sesshins (intensive retreats), dokusan, study groups, and ceremonies.

Create community
At Stone Creek, zazen-based practice is integrated with daily life. The sangha community comes together for various forms of practice, for celebrations, care of the temple, and for mutual support as we follow the Buddha Way of wisdom and compassion.

Practice generosity: support the Zen Center
Generosity is essential to all dharma practice. A commitment to membership reminds us of our intention to practice with our whole life. Membership is the primary financial support for Stone Creek.

Your regular contribution as a member sustains the teachings, supports teachers, and maintains the center.

All are welcome to practice as part of the Stone Creek sangha regardless of membership status. Membership is a commitment to your Zen practice and to Stone Creek.
