Dear Members and Visitors of the Mindfulness Meditation Centers communities and websites:
Thank you so much for all your time and efforts to support the communities. We've been very successful in building a positive, practice-oriented community. As the community has grown, one of our challenges has been to more consistently manage memberships and subscriptions to provide a stable support for the centers and our online presence. To this end, we will be moving to a more centralized, online approach to membership and membership benefits, including access to online material and retreat registration.
So, beginning soon, in the next couple of months, we will be implementing a new system on this site for becoming an MMC member and managing your current membership. Along with your sign-in, you will have access to audio on this site, retreat registration along with significant discounts, and news from the various communities. The cost for membership will be $80/month for single membership, and $120/month for couples.
Of course, all the other membership benefits will remain, including:
- unlimited access to all weekly classes,
- unlimited access to weekend or one-day retreats,
- significant retreat discounts to the cost of long-term (one week or longer) retreats,
- unlimited access to audio and video downloads,
- counseling (relationship, drug and alcohol, bereavement, end-of-life) services,
- meditation assistance,
- retreat cabin use,
- library resources, and
- children's programs.
How will this affect my access to audio and video teachings?
Once implemented, membership payments will be done through this website, and a monthly payment will be required to maintain access to the teachings. Setting up recurring monthly payments will be secure and easy, just like making a payment over any other secure website. You will be able to use a credit card or PayPal. For those who prefer to make payments in-person using cash or check, you will still be able to do so.
If you have questions about how the new system will work, please feel free to contact us.
Without our members, this would not be any sort of community at all, and we appreciate everything you do for the community and all of your contributions.
