Become a member of Mountain Cloud Zen Center

Membership is the most effective way to support both Mountain Cloud and your personal practice. Membership contributions provide the essential support for our facilities, land, teachings, practice periods and special programs.

Members participate in the life of the center to whatever extent they wish by joining the regular sittings and teachings, as well as sangha meetings, committees, and work periods (samu) where we take care of the center, the garden and the land.

We deeply appreciate the generosity of our members. Your kind support is what makes the dharma flourish at Mountain Cloud. Thank you to all!
