Cost

The Great Wave Zen Sangha is organized under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code as a non-profit charity.  Like most other such organizations, its ability to perpetuate the Buddha’s teaching is entirely dependent upon your generosity.  Donations (known as dana in the Buddhist tradition) are therefore encouraged and gratefully received.  While members of Great Wave commit to making regular monthly donations, non-members who practice at Great Wave need only cover the cost of retreats (which are shown in the table below).

Becoming a member of Great Wave provides a number of financial advantages, including a significant discount on retreats.  You can learn more about membership categories on our membership page.

 

Retreat Costs
Half-Day Retreats Zazenkai Extended Zazenkai Sesshin
Members $0 $30/night $40/night  $40/night
Non-Members $0 $30/night $60/night $60/night

 

If you cannot afford to pay for retreat, you may still attend one.  The Sangha will make every effort to ensure that no one will be denied access for financial reasons.  For more information about this, please see our financial hardship page.

It is also possible to make a one-time donation to Great Wave.  If you believe that our mission deserves support, we invite you to visit our Dana page.

We sincerely appreciate all that our many members and friends have done for us over the years.
