Our Member level is for those who want to be regular contributing and supporting members of the PHZC community, helping to further our mission and practices. Members pay discounted fees for PHZC special events, as well as receiving discounts on any materials and supplies offered through the Center.
If you can’t regularly attend weekly meditation and services but want to stay in communication and be made aware of PHZC events, please consider becoming a Friend of PHZC. Giving at this level is in the spirit of “I can't be a regular, but I do want to support Prajna Heart and what it stands for.” A dollar a day.
Guests and anyone new to Prajna Heart Zen are always welcomed at no charge and no obligation. If after 3 visits you want to continue with the PHZC community, we kindly ask that you join our Sangha at the Member level. (Or become a Friend.)
Free, just come by!
The Zafu Fund
Just as a meditation cushion supports good posture and practice, contributing to our Zafu Fund supports our ongoing operations, materials, supplies and expenses. One-time or monthly donations at any level are gratefully accepted.
