About Membership

Membership offers an opportunity for individuals to be part of the ongoing work of Effortless Mindfulness Institute, the educational wing of our 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. By becoming a member of the Natural Wakefulness Center, you join us in making a difference through your tax-deductible donation, enabling us to provide scholarships, create new content, produce podcasts, organize retreats, conduct advanced training programs, and contribute to the community. Members enjoy early notification of popular events, exclusive invitations to yearly member events with Loch, and the opportunity to participate in the annual NWC membership meeting with the Board of Directors.
