ZPO Member Groups

The Zen Peacemaker Order has Member Groups. They consist of Zen Centers, Circles and Social Enterprises. They are all independently governed but share practices defined by the ZPO Governance Circles.

The requirements for Group Membership in the Zen Peacemaker Order are:

  1. Undertake The Three Tenets as a core practice.
  2. Encourage Social Action by individual Members of the group.
  3. Offer at least one training in The Core Practices open to any ZPO member.
  4. Honor the ZPO Grievance Procedure unless the Group has its own Procedure.
  5. List ZPO Membership on the Group’s website and provide a link to the ZPO website.
  6. Disseminate information on the ZPO to the group’s  members.

There is no Fee to become a ZPO Member Group.

The ZPO is asking every Individual ZPO Member to take trainings from the ZPO Member Groups. These trainings are listed below with the Groups contact information that are offering the various trainings.

The list of Groups by location has been sorted in this order: continent, country, state, city, and group name.
