Join us as a Distance Member
If you are looking to deepen your practice by connecting with a Sangha and a teacher, but do not live near Zenwest, Distance Membership is an option to gain access to resources and personal instruction. Distance Membership is an option for individuals who are currently living outside of Southern Vancouver Island and have connected with Zenwest either in person on Vancouver Island, or through our online training resources.
Due to the human and technology resources required to support Distance Members, we are currently limiting our Distance Membership to fifteen (15) individuals.
Anyone living outside of Southern Vancouver Island who supports our Vision, Mission, and Bylaws can apply to become a Distance Member of Zenwest.
As a Distance Member, you are most welcome to attend any of our public events such as the Tuesday Evening Zen Meditation while you are visiting Victoria.
If, as a Distance Member, you wish to attend any formal practice activities such as our Sunday Zendo or any intensives, you must complete the courses and/or assessments indicated below before you attend.
