Membership Levels

One third of your donation goes to Memphis Friends Meeting for the use of their space, another third to support the dharma efforts of our larger organization, the Silent Thunder Order. The remaining third goes to the group, which will allow us to maintain this website, distribute teaching and promotional materials, and purchase supplies as needed. Any leftover funds go into savings towards greater goals, such as establishing tax-exempt non-profit status, incorporating as an organization, and in the longer term, to work towards the dream of a dedicated practice space so that we can offer more programming throughout the week.

If you would prefer to make one-time yearly pledge equaling one of the Membership Levels above, or if you would like to make any other one-time donation via PayPal in any amount, click below:
