SUNDAY BEACH SITTING
There will be a sitting at the ocean (near Law Street in Pacific Beach) on Sunday morning, July 17th, from 10:00-12:30. We will sit facing the ocean for three 30 minute periods, interspersed with two 20 minute gatha walks. It will end with an informal meal - please bring your own lunch. Also bring a cushion or chair to sit on. We will meet at 9:50 at Law St. near the restrooms before going down to the beach to the right of Law Street. Please leave enough time to find a parking space.

Sesshin Cancellations
With the on-line sesshin application process solidly in place, we have been receiving a greater number of applicants. As a result, there is typically a wait list of hopeful attendees. Last minute cancellations often preclude a wait list applicant from being able to attend and results in unnecessary food costs. In the future, we will be imposing the cancellation fees described in the acceptance notice. We understand that emergencies and illnesses arise and will certainly take those circumstances into consideration. Thank You.
Membership Dues
Zen Center members are now able to pay dues with PayPal. You may pay dues monthly, quarterly, semi-annually or annually. Payments can also be scheduled for automatic payment from a checking account or credit card.  There is a small transaction fee for the service which has been added to the payment (about 3% -- for a monthly dues payment of $30, the fee will be $1).  We encourage members to pay their dues with PayPal to help us streamline accounting procedures at ZCSD.
