Support CMZC

Dharma Sangha relies on the generosity of many individuals to continue the practice of Zen Buddhism at the Crestone Mountain Zen Center. Your donations are deeply appreciated by everyone practicing here.

Our membership program is a joint membership for Dharma Sangha’s two practice locations. You will receive benefits at both the Crestone Mountain Zen Center and the Boulder Zen Center. For a list of benefits, see the table below.

You can also support the Center through work practice, either by joining the daily schedule as a student or by participating in the annual Spring Work Week.

About the Membership Program

Membership is an opportunity to express your commitment to practice and your commitment to help others practice.

This is a joint membership for Dharma Sangha’s two practice locations. Integration of our lay and our monastic practice communities in Crestone vitalizes the practice in both Crestone and Boulder and for each participating practitioner.
