Keep the Dharma Flourishing

We invite all students, members, and friends of the Zen Center to sit together in meditation to raise funds for the Zen Center’s Scholarship Fund. This fund supports current and prospective students in study, practice, and service work in hospitals, hospices, nursing homes and community organizations.


You can get involved by becoming a sitter and fundraising in support of your sit, or by donating to the campaign.


Sit for Scholarship on July 23rd will be held in-person and on Zoom. If you plan to attend in person and are vaccinated, please reach out to sitforscholarship@zencare.org to be added to the list of attendees.
