What Does Membership Support?

Membership is a way of giving more regularly, and is the foundation upon which Brooklyn Zen Center can support its ongoing programs and teachers. Brooklyn Zen Center operations are largely dependent on the generosity of our community, and membership is our most sustainable source of revenue, reflecting a vital and engaged community base. Membership payments will be charged automatically each month. We would appreciate members giving us at least one week of notice before cancellation requests can be processed.

Benefits of Membership

We offer the following benefits to members:

  • Member rates for retreats, workshops, events and classes (after 3 months)
  • Regular updates on Brooklyn Zen Center’s finances as well as all board decisions
  • The knowledge that you are supporting a quiet, powerful force for compassion and peace in the world

Please note that all membership contributions are tax deductible. If you have any questions please email
