Cost of Events
Why Do We Have Fees for Events?
Ideally the Dharma would be offered for free. In fact many people offer their time and energy selflessly to make these events happen. And in fact we endeavor never to exclude anyone from participating because of inability to pay. However our events typically incur many expenses, from airfare for visiting teachers to food for participants.
Dana for Visiting Teachers.
Dana supports visiting teachers who greatly enhance AZC's offerings.

It's Not Your Job to Pretend
Interested in either starting or deepening your Zen practice in a residential setting with others? Our Guest Practice program is a short term opportunity (one to four weeks) that includes meditation, study, work practice and discussions with other practitioners about Zen Buddhism.
Our online magazine, JustThis, is now an active, alive blog rather than a magazine which comes out in issues. We post pieces as they come in to encourage conversation and interaction between the readers and the writers.
We use the Tuesday night Zen Writing group as the source of many of the postings. As well, we welcome other submissions for consideration.
Visit the JustThis writers and artists in their endeavors.
