  • Throughout the year, there will be additional events when supporting members may be asked to contribute. The requested donation will be either: a.) to help cover the additional cost incurred by facilitating a special event, or b.) to support an event that is specifically designated as a fund-raiser.

    Visitors may attend two Sunday services or weekday meditation classes at the Zen Center as a non-member of our Sangha. We ask for donations upon attendance, $5-$10 per visit for Sunday services and weekday meditations.

    Homonji Iaido

    (Japanese Sword Arts) classes are offered three times per week as a way to gain focus, mindfulness and balance. New visitors are welcome to attend before becoming a supporting member. A DGZ supporting membership is required to take regular ongoing classes and additional donation cost, and equipment costs may apply.
