Zen student membership

If you wish to practice with us, in London or remotely, you can become a member here. Membership is a donation.

T he basis of membership is mutual support. You support the Dharma and you receive the support that can allow your practice to flourish.

Rather than making membership a commercial transaction, Zenways relies on the generosity of people like you who feel that this practice is an important part of their lives and who choose to express that feeling by contributing to our community’s development and strength. The Buddha said when gathering support members of the community should be like bees moving from flower to flower, not impacting too greatly on any individual flower. You are welcome to join with us by becoming a member. Most importantly, you will be joining with a growing number of visionary people who understand that we can do so much more together than we can alone!

When a virtuous person gives to a virtuous person with a trusting heart a gift righteously obtained, placing faith that the fruit of action is great, that gift, I say, will come to full fruition.Shakyamuni Buddha
