Dues and Donations go to support the life of this temple. We have no outside support from any national or international organization.
With the monies collected we pay a small stipend to the wife of our retired abbot; in addition, we pay for our zendo, and the costs of putting on our retreats.
Dues are $75 a month or whatever one can afford if this is a financial burden. Any amount received on a monthly basis means that you will receive our quarterly newsletter, “Plum Mountain News,” receive discounts on retreats, and be considered an active member of our group.
The suggested fee for any morning or evening practice period, including Tuesday night introduction and Sunday night Dharma Talks is five dollars. The $5 fee is waived for all members.
The suggested fee for mini-sesshins is $25. Fees for the March, June, and September sesshins are $250, and Rohatsu Sesshin is $440. Members may subtract their monthly dues from the week-long sesshin cost.
