Become a Member

We invite you to become a member of the Blue Heron Zen Community. Blue Heron provides an opportunity for you to learn Zen meditation, and to develop and deepen your practice. Your membership supports the entire community.  As a benefit for you, membership gives you a voice in our community development, discounts for retreats, and access to the members-only section of the web site with past dharma talks, community documentation and the Bodhisattva Activity Bulletin Board.

By becoming a member, you help make it possible for the Blue Heron to continue offering programs and activities, and to help pay the costs of owning and maintaining our center. Membership represents your support for the Teachers, Teachings, and the Community.

We offer five categories of membership. Your name and email address will be retrieved from PayPal.  Feel free to support our community at the level that works for you with a monthly PayPal subscription or pay when you are able:
