2021 BZC Membership Drive: a Testimonial from Amy and Nyoden

Brooklyn Zen Center (BZC) is having a membership drive during the month of October! Of course there is still time to join! If you have not done so yet, we encourage you to become a member today!

During the membership drive, we have been sharing testimonials from current BZC members here and here. Today, we are sharing the final testimonial, from Amy and Nyoden.
Thank you all for your generous support!

“We have been active members of Brooklyn Zen Center for several years and feel grateful for this community. The pandemic has led to severe challenges for the sangha, including having to give up its practice space in Brooklyn.

Despite those challenges, this community has remained a source of support and refuge for us. The sangha held us in our darkest moments when we lost family members and through the joyous time when we became parents.

Ultimately the sangha is each of us. For our family, membership is a way of nurturing this sense of community. We are grateful to be able to contribute to Brooklyn Zen Center in this way.”
