Hokyoji’s members provide a third of its operating support. Membership is vital to Hokyoji’s life, for both for its continuing daily functioning now and the laying of a solid foundation for its future.

Maybe it’s been awhile since you’ve been at Hokyoji itself. Maybe you are an early practitioner, who helped Katagiri roshi build a practice here in the early days. Maybe you’ve only just discovered Hokyoji, and you’re new to the community. Maybe you live some distance away and enjoy keeping in touch with Hokyoji via Facebook, newsletters and this website. Whatever your connection with us, we want to welcome you as a member. Your involvement is really important–both your gifts of financial support and volunteer time, and your commitment to stay up to date on what’s happening here in your Hokyoji community.

Please choose a level of support that works for you, and become a member today. It’s easy! Just click here, or download our membership form and mail it in. Join us to help make sure that Hokyoji has a solid financial base that will allow us to continue to offer meaningful practice opportunities in this unique landscape of wooded ridges and spacious meadows.
