Please sponsor someone who otherwise would not be able to attend
Please look at the suggested contributions on the booking page of each event and enter into the spirit of the solidarity economy by buying a retreat for someone. And there are those who would like to attend this retreat or workshop and would benefit from it, but who cannot afford to do so. We price our events on a non-profit basis and make them as affordable as we can, and we offer bursaries. But we also rely on the generosity of others to enable us to enable those who cannot afford to do so, to attend. So please, if you can, buy an extra ticket which we will allocate to someone who really needs it. Alternatively, please offer a donation - we are grateful for any amount - which will be directly used to finance a ticket for others.
Financial Assistance: A sliding scale may be chosen on the registration page, we expect and a 'Truth and honesty' approach.
Dana - Teacher Fees.
The word Dana is a Sanskrit and Pali word which means giving something unconditionally with an open heart. It is an ancient practice in Buddhism for cultivating generosity. This retreat is offered in the tradition of Dana by the teachers. We ask you to consider with care what is possible for you to give, knowing that the teachers rely on Dana to support their living so that they will be able to continue teaching.
Alta Starr describes, “Liberation requires us to become aware of and dismantle the inevitable ways systems of domination live in us. Through releasing old habitual contractions and building new embodied competencies, we reclaim our bodies, inhabiting our lives ever more fully and intentionally. As our experience of life is heightened and nourished by increased awareness and capacity to choose, rather than only react, we become more able to coordinate skillfully with others from a ground of authenticity, trust and accountability”
