Practice of Generosity

In keeping with traditional practice, the Teacher does not charge a fee for teaching but lives by Dana (donations, the generosity and support of students). Dana is a Buddhist teaching about giving and receiving, about generosity and thankfulness, and the interdependence of all beings.

It is not a tip or gratuity and is often the teacher’s only source of livelihood. It is left up to the participants to assess their own financial circumstances and to give accordingly, as generously as possible. A suggested amount of $30.00 per day can be considered. This is a guide only. Please bring the Dana with you when you come to the retreat. You may give your Dana to the onsite course coordinator at the beginning of the retreat. In addition, a bowl will be available to receive donations.
