Become a supporting member of KMC NYC

Eight Very Good Reasons to Join Your Local KMC NYC Community

  1. When you become a member of KMC NYC you're actively supporting the flourishing of Dharma in NYC and throughout the world. 
  2. Not only are you helping Dharma flourish in the world, you're also committing to your own spiritual growth - making a statement in your own life about the prominent role you want to give to Buddha's teachings in your life.
  3. Becoming a supporting member of KMC NYC is the most economical way to enjoy all our classes (in person or online), retreats, day courses and branch classes at no cost. If you attend the center and/or branch classes regularly, your membership will represent a substantial savings over the pay-as-you-go option.
  4. Throughout the year, there are special events that take place at KMC NYC, which members are entitled to half off the admission price.
  5. As well as all the free classes and half-off admissions you'll be receiving, you'll also qualify for a 50% discount on the price of recorded General Program classes.
  6. While the Center largely relies on membership fees to provide classes throughout the year, a significant portion of our profit is donated to the International Temples Fund. That means your money starts off at KMC NYC but often has a global impact.
  7. Your membership fees also give you access to our three study programs. If you choose to commit to a study program such as Foundation Program or the Teacher Training Program, this cost is included in your membership. It's the most profound and at the same time, most affordable education you'll ever receive!
  8. And, last of all, but certainly not least of all, when you become a member of KMC NYC you simultaneously become part of our extended spiritual family. This all happens in the same moment! You really can't be a member of KMC NYC and also a stranger to us. Welcome to our community!
