Annual Fundraiser: No Separation
(May 2 – May 9)

Moonrise, and I long for home.

In a breath, I realize–

beloved sangha, breathing with me. 


In the past year, despite incredible challenges, our practice as a sangha has endured and thrived. Our usual in-person forms have been rapidly adapted to allow us to continue to practice together, blurring the lines between home and zendo, allowing us to see and support each other’s practice despite physical separation. These new forms have shown yet again that ultimately, there is no separation between us, and the practice of each us us nurtures and sustains us all– no matter where we are. 

The theme of our annual fundraiser this year is No Separation. Our annual fundraiser raises money for operating expenses, which in the past year have included significant expenditures for virtualization of most of our programs, classes, and retreats. Monitors, microphones, cameras, and more have allowed us to bring the zendo into our homes, and to practice together. We invite you to support us in all that we do to make practice available virtually. 

Our goal is to raise $30,000. We will be focusing on raising funds May 2-9, but donations are welcome and appreciated at any time.  Please click below to donate. A PayPal account is not required.
