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.

Our online magazine, JustThis, is 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.
