AZC is a non-profit, all volunteer community Zen center supported solely through member donations. As members, we recognize membership as the opportunity to express both a commitment to our own practice (through dana - the cultivation of generosity) as well as support for the practice of those who may not be able to. AZC membership includes access to the extensive AZC library, a subscription to the Kai Han newsletter and discounted programs - such as jodo training.
Becoming a member is really the simple matter of working through one of our Beginners Instructions and then showing up to sit. That's it - you learn how to sit and then you sit (and sit and sit). And inevitably you realize that if you want to keep on this path, then you will need a place to sit and a community to sit with and you will want to make sure that both continue strongly. And eventually you will arrive at the point where you want to ensure that there's a place for the next version of you to stumble across and benefit from. That is the true nature of membership. Welcome to the world of Zen!
And from this page, you can make a monthly donation as your part in helping this center continue strongly. You can use a debit card, credit card or your PayPal account.
