Become a Member of Eon Zen



Eon Zen Sangha Member

Zen teaches that "your life is the life of the buddha." Our community welcomes sincere meditation practitioners who desire to actualize their buddha nature -- their fundamentally awakened nature -- together with others. Membership activates a mutual commitment between the Member and the group: Members receive benefits from the group to support their lives and practice. In turn they commit to supporting the group and community with their practice, service and sangha participation, in addition to financial contribution.

We recognize the temporal and financial constraints faced by many of those desiring to practice and will work with all sincere practitioners to balance commitment levels to your capacity. Use the "Ask a Question" form link below to discuss with us any special circumstances. 

Group members receive access to all weekly zazen sessions, discounts on all programs, access to the Eon Member Resources, and monthly private meetings with Sensei as desired.
