Dharma Gate Zen Membership

All are welcome at Dharma Gate Zen Center. Membership is available to all who are interested in a place to learn about the Dharma, find balance and peace of mind.

General membership

Individual Membership: $40 per month ($10 per week)

Family of four (or more): $120 per month ($30 per week)

Membership includes participation in all of the following:

  • Sunday services

  • Opportunity to take precepts
  • Introduction to Buddhism and Meditation classes
  • Sangha-led discussion groups
  • Meditative Creative meetings

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 two classes at no charge before becoming a supporting member. A DGZ supporting membership is required to take regular ongoing classes.
