Membership Information

"Like Two Arrows Meeting in Mid-Air"

As a non-profit organization, Two Arrows Zen is entirely supported by our members and donors. Your monthly and annual contributions support our centers and staff in Salt Lake City and in Torrey. There are different levels of participation in the Two Arrows Zen practice. We invite you to choose the contribution level that fits your practice commitment:

  • Meditator: You just want to meditate in the Virual Zendo and/or join the online Sunday talks. 
  • TAZ Supporter: You want to meditate in the Virtual Zendo, come to the online Sunday talks, and receive the recordings.
  • Dharma Practitioner: You want to enter the Zen lineage and receive Jukai. You intend to attend at least one sesshin a year and maintain a regular meditation commitment.
  • Dharma Sustainer: You have entered the Zen lineage and received Jukai. You attend at least one sesshin a year and maintain a daily meditation practice. You are approved for quarterly Dokusan with a teacher.
  • Bodhisattva Circle: You have entered the Zen lineage and received Jukai. You attend at least two sesshins a year and maintain a daily meditation practice. You have a formal relationship with a teacher, meet in scheduled Dokusan, and participate weekly in a peer-to-peer practice group.

Students (undergraduate or graduate) and those under 25 qualify for reduced membership fees. Please CONTACT US for more information and to apply.

DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC

Two Arrows Zen community is responding to the COVID-19 pandemic with changes to our programming. One thing that is clear is that practicing social distancing by cancelling and limiting events is crucial for preventing deaths.
With that in mind, until additional guidance is available, all in-person Two Arrows Zen programs are suspended and the Artspace Zendo in Salt Lake City is closed.
Our online resources are robust and have been expanded to support practitioners during this period of challenge and opportunity.

via the Zoom Conference platform
Monday - Friday, 7:00 - 8:15 am MT

Virtual Zendo - Evening Sitting with Musho Roshi
via the Zoom Conference platform
Monday - Thursday, 5:30 - 6:45 pm MT
