2017 Membership Drive Progress


Members
 
  Pledges 
 
The Red Clay Sangha 2017 Membership Drive is on and we are calling on everyone who has been supported by RCS to in turn support RCS. Benefits of membership include being part of a warm and welcoming community and practicing the generosity and compassion of the Buddha together with a Sangha. Members are able to serve on the Board of Directors, vote for the Board slate, play a key role in shaping the future of RCS by participating in the annual membership meeting and other special planning/visioning meetings and register for retreats before they are open to the public.

The contributions we receive from RCS members sustain our practice schedule and allow us to practice generosity both individually and as a community by offering the dharma free of charge. We have been able to hold 4-day residential retreats in a rural setting charging minimal fees to cover food and lodging and Saturday retreats free of charge. Membership pledges provide a stable and reliable financial base so that we can continue to build our Sangha and share our practice with more people. During the past year, we have accomplished much with only about 20 pledging members. Imagine what we could do if we had twice as many members pledging their financial support!

    



New to Red Clay Sangha? Welcome! Please enter quietly, remove your shoes and join in the meditation session if it is in progress. Modest, comfortable clothing is appropriate. Please do not wear fragrance. Please be quiet in the parking lot, stairs and entryway. Once entering the meditation hall, please remember that this is our sacred space. 

Meditation Instruction - is available briefly before each session (please arrive early and ask the attendant for assistance)
