ZenSpace welcomes everyone to learn, practice, and enjoy Zen meditation. While we encourage donations to help defray facility costs, we do not charge fees for membership or participation in any events.
Anyone who has demonstrated a commitment to Zen practice is eligible for membership, subject to the approval of the Board of Directors. Members are expected to support ZenSpace by regular attendance and are encouraged to contribute time and energy to maintaining the center's schedule and facilities. Membership does not involve the formal taking of Buddhist precepts or vows. Membership duties may include leading regularly scheduled meditation periods, offering meditation instruction to newcomers, and production and maintenance of the ZenSpace web site and other publications.
The Board of Directors oversees the general operations of the center. The Board will be elected each year by the membership at an annual membership meeting. Candidates for the Board should have practiced Zen meditation for at least two years and demonstrated a commitment to ZenSpace and its charter. All members are welcome to nominate candidates to the Board.
In all our activities, we strive to maintain an inclusive and compassionate atmosphere that supports the meditation practice of all of our members and associates.
