If you have been sitting at BZC for a few months and wish to contribute regularly to support the practice, we encourage you to become a member of Berkeley Zen Center. Please speak with one of the practice leaders or with the contact person identified at Saturday lecture to discuss membership and receive an application, or email our office manager, who can have a membership coordinator contact you.

Every Saturday, someone from our New Member Committee is available to meet with people considering membership at BZC.  Please feel free to talk to one of us on Saturday after lecture or contact us to set up a meeting at another time. Our contact information will be posted on the patio bulletin board. We’d be happy to speak with you.

We are also offering a new activity for anyone who is new to BZC and has questions about our practice. Once a month, we will host an informal meeting in the zendo after Saturday lecture. This is an opportunity to ask anything you want to know about BZC but were hesitant to ask. Everyone is welcome.  See the patio bulletin board for dates.
