Salt Spring Zen Circle offers two types of membership: Active Member and Friend of SSZC.
Active Membership is defined as:
1. A commitment expressed in the form of paying annual sangha membership fees, or alternatively, communicating the need for a reduction or waiver with the Treasurer.
2. Developing and maintaining a regular sitting practice. Please discuss this with our guiding teacher if you have questions about how to do this.
3. Active participation in sangha life through attendance at zazen; offering service to help the sangha function; and participation in other practice events.
4. Voluntary support of our teacher through the practice of dana.
Active Members will receive regular emails regarding Salt Spring Zen Circle activities and events.
We wholeheartedly welcome Active Members who live off-island. It is understood that off-island Members will occasionally be able to attend sangha events.
Friends of Salt Spring Zen Circle
“Friends” are those who are not active members, but who would like to remain connected to the sangha through periodic email newsletters including information about sesshin, study retreat, and other practice opportunities.
Please contact Simon Rompre at email@example.com or Judith Daylen at firstname.lastname@example.org for questions about becoming a member.
