BECOME A MEMBER
Depending on how intensely you want to and are able to get involved in the work of the Chan Center, as well as on your financial circumstances, you can choose between three types of membership — full, associate and sponsorship. All three types consist of payments on a regular monthly basis over a period of no less than a year, and are distinguished by the degree of benefits they bring and — of course — the monthly amount to be donated. With the membership status, you get special discounts for occasional and special activities at the Center — courses, talk cycles, meditation retreats and workshops. By becoming a member you also support the greatest advantage of all — allowing the Chan Center to operate smoothly as a source of spiritual practice for yourself and others. The Chan Center is a nonprofit organization financed by membership fees, Chan practice programs and donations. For the harmonious functioning of the Center, it is necessary that its revenues are not extraordinary (occasional), but regular. All those who participate in the activities of the Center, all those who have taken the Threefold Refuge and the Five Precepts, together with all sympathizers are invited to become members and thereby contribute to its maintenance.
However, membership is not a prerequisite for participation in the Center’s activities. You can also support us by regularly participating in our program as well as / or making donations.
