Membership

membershipMembership Enrollment Options: We offer different categories of membership based on your interest in participation and the intention you would like to bring to your practice in the coming year. TTS will respect any choice you make, and we welcome anyone to practice with us on a weekly basis for free.

Our membership consists of people who come together to practice in a way consistent with Zen Buddhist practice. The group has been in existence for over 25 years and has had a number of teachers in the Sanbō Kyōdan/Diamond Sangha lineage, beginning with Aitken Rōshi himself and continuing on through several others to Jack Duffy Rōshi, our current teacher.
