Membership

Membership in the Mindfulness Community of Puget Sound (MCPS)

MCPS is a lay Buddhist community inspired by the teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh.  Our mission is to nurture compassion and understanding, both within the sangha, and throughout the larger society.

The community comes together regularly to meditate and deepen our practice.  We seek to encourage and nourish each other through dharma discussions and mindful actions.  We endeavor to help one another celebrate the wonders of life, as we work side-by-side to help relieve suffering in the world.

MCPS members commit to developing a regular meditation practice.  Members support the sangha by donating their time, and through regular monthly (tax deductible) contributions.  A membership form is available HERE.  If interested, kindly fill it out and return to our Membership Coordinator, John Malcomson. For any questions, use our Contact form or call John at 206-284-9489

All sangha events, except retreats, are offered free of charge.  If you are not a member, we would greatly appreciate your donation to help meet the cost of running Dharma Gate, our practice center.  For this purpose, you will find a basket on the kitchen table marked:  DANA.  Dana is a Sanskrit word for generosity.
