2018 was an important year for the Puget Sound Zen Center. In May 2018 we purchased 7 acres of land on Vashon Island. Our hope and vision is to design and build trails for walking meditation, gardens and ultimately a permanent zendo to support our Buddhist practice, as well as to be a valued asset for the island community.
In the near future we plan to offer day retreats and other programs on the property. We already sit on the land every Saturday morning and have constructed some initial walking trails, as well as a temporary tent structure for doing zazen, but more improvements are still needed.
If you are not already a member of the Puget Sound Zen Center, we hope you will consider becoming a monthly supporting member or making a single donation. Your membership or contribution will enable us to continue to grow as a sangha, offer valuable programs, and improve and develop our new property.
If you give before December 31, 2018 your generosity will be matched, dollar for dollar, up to $3000. This match is a great opportunity to double your impact.
Thank you so much for your support as we look to the future. We are profoundly grateful. We invite you to join us again in 2019 and be a part of the Puget Sound Zen Center.
