Membership in the Seven Thunders organization is strictly optional--we invite non-member inquirers to attend our sittings, sesshin and retreats. At some point, however, inquirers may want to associate more deeply with the organization and at the same time receive the additional benefits that membership offers.
There are two levels of membership: (1) An Associate Member participates infrequently in Seven Thunders activities but desires to remain in contact with the organization, receiving the newsletter and other mailings. An Associate Member supports Seven Thunders, both through $15 annual dues and voluntary contributions. (2) A Full Member participates in activities necessary to maintain the organization, including retreats, local sittings, meetings and voluntary contributions. The annual fee for Full Members is $30, but a FM receives a $30 credit for all sesshin and retreats during the membership year. A paid-up Full Member also has access to additional areas of this website including the writings of our teacher, Leonard Marcel.
Initially a person may ask simply to be added to our email list. This will entitle her/him to several mailings of our newsletter and email notices of forthcoming events and other news. In December each year, a mailing--by postal service and by email--will invite members to renew their membership. At this time inquirers are invited to become Full or Associate Members.
