  • You do not need to be a member of the Sangha to join us in any of our events. However, a free membership is available to help deepen your commitment to meditation and the Sangha, as well as to have voting privileges in yearly elections, and more. Ask on a Monday evening for a membership form or see it online.

Sangha Support (Dana)*

The Sangha offers our weekly meetings, programs, and retreats through the volunteer efforts of members and the Board. We rely on your weekly donations to pay the rental fee for this space. Our teachers receive no payment for their instruction: in the tradition of dana (generosity) they are supported solely by your voluntary donations. May your generosity be a spontaneous expression of gratitude. We have a donation box on the lobby table with the order of service booklets. Your donations are tax deductible.

If you can’t attend our group meditation, you can find a group that practices sitting Meditation near you.

Volunteer to help the Sangha
Our Sangha would not be possible without the work of our volunteers. Ask one of the board members any time if you are interested in helping out. We need help with setup, cleanup, delivery of donations to the local food pantry and more.
