Dharma Center Membership

Grow with Us!

We are blessed to have individuals who understand the importance of supporting places like Dharma Center where the public can learn to practice meditation and mindfulness, and where those deeply committed to the practice can excel. We reward those who provide support through annual or monthly dues with Member status.

As a Dharma Center Member, you’ll enjoy the company of sincere spiritual seekers who have a deep love of Light. Dharma Center Members are an integral part of our Sangha. Not only do they provide the majority of our financial support, Members are the backbone of our community. In general, Dharma Center Members are fun, friendly, supportive, and committed to spiritual growth.

If this sounds like you or the qualities you would like to develop, become a Dharma Center Member today!

Dharma Center Members participate at a variety of levels. Some are financial supporters who commit monthly or yearly dues to ensure the continuity of the Teachings. Others travel from across the country to attend Power Trips and other Member events. Most sit together at the weekly classes, sharing their challenges and successes along the Path.

Currently, we offer 2 types of Dharma Supporter


Monthly Pledge

Annual Supporter

All Members receive these benefits:

  • Invitations to Power Trips, Retreats, Special Events, and Member Outings
  • Ability to suggest future retreat destinations and group activities
  • Library Access
  • Tuition Discount
  • Part of the Membership Dues collected each year will be given to these charities (While Dharma Center is not a charity, we have deep respect for the work of non-profits and want to show our support for the important work they do.)

Lions, Tigers, and Bears

This organization provides a sanctuary for majestic animals that have no place to go. On our recent visit, we learned most zoos accept only pure-bred animals. The exotic animal trade often cross-breeds different types of tigers and lions, creating beautiful animals who cannot survive in the wild and that are unwanted by zoos. Without no-breed, no-kill, no-sell sanctuaries like Lions, Tigers, and Bears many of these large animals would be rescued from horrid conditions only to face a death sentence. Fortunately, this local San Diego charity provides a safe, clean home where they can live out their lives with respect and dignity.

National Park Foundation

Many of our Power Trips take place at National Parks. As the only national nonprofit partner to the National Park Service, the National Park Foundation directly supports America’s over 400 national parks by pursuing three distinct, yet interdependent, areas of focus: PROTECTING American’s national parks through critical conservation & preservation efforts; CONNECTING all Americans with their incomparable natural landscapes, vibrant culture, rich history and the transformative community work of the National Park Service, and INSPIRING lifelong engagement with the next generation of park stewards.


Annual Members at the higher levels will receive additional benefits, as shown on the sign-up page below.

Touching the Dharma, even just once, can enrich a person’s entire life, opening them to possibilities they never knew existed.

Every gift of time or money connects you to a long line of Light-givers. These are people who make the world a brighter and more beautiful place through their actions of practicing and supporting the teachings. In addition to helping others discover the wonder, joy and magic of meditation and mindfulness, you’ll have access to our Member’s library filled with CDs and books from a wide range of practices and perspectives. Membership also includes invitations to member only events. These special events include desert trips, mountain retreats, movies, meditations, and other powerful adventures into Light with your spiritual community. You can be a modern Boddhisattva by joining Dharma Center’s group of members!
