To study the Buddha way is to study the self.
To study the self is to forget the self.
To forget the self is to be enlightened by all things.

Membership Support

The support of the Membership is essential for the functioning of Sweetwater Zen Center. Without you we cannot establish and maintain our practice center in the South Bay. With the dependable monthly donation from Members, it is possible to budget and plan responsibly. The Members are also active in keeping the programs running and helping out with everything that needs to be done.

As a Member you will have the opportunity for private instruction with Roshi and to take advantage of the various study programs as they evolve. Our practice is centered on meditation, council and dharma talks. We also have study groups and training in other areas. Members receive discounts for activities at SWZC and at our sister monastery, Zen Mountain Center. We also have a Membership e-mail group for disseminating information and promoting community communication.

The suggested membership fee is $50.00 per month, however you can adjust your membership donation to contribute as much as your situation allows. Use the button on the bottom right of the page to make an online payment. If you would like to become a member please fill out the membership form. Once we receive your form we will contact you by e-mail or phone. If you have any questions call the Zen Center at 619-477-0390 or e-mail us.
