For more than 30 years, Red Cedar Zen has offered a Soto Zen practice community in the lineage of Shunryu Suzuki Roshi, author of Zen Mind, Beginner Mind. Most of our activities and events are open to everyone; you do not need to be a member in order to participate. However, as a non-profit organization with no outside funding source, we rely on a broad base of support to cover our operating expenses. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit and your donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.
One way to support our community is to become a member. We have a wide variety of membership levels to choose from, for all income levels. It is not our intention to turn away anyone who is sincerely committed to zen practice. Please see our Membership Form for a list of available membership levels and to start the process of becoming a member or renewing your membership.
Red Cedar Zen Community benefits greatly from your membership, but you benefit as well.
