Financial Support

Our mission is to make all of our programs accessible. Every fee-based offering has a limited number of pay-what-you-can spots available to support self-identified people of color, members of marginalized groups (queer people, transgender people, and  people with disabilities) and those in financial need (those for whom the cost to attend is not financially possible). 

These spots are offered on a first come, first served basis. Please pay at the highest level you can afford. In order for this support to be available, we rely on those who can afford to pay the full price to do so.

Find out if spots are available by clicking REGISTER NOW on the event you are interested in.

Refund and Event Policies

Please note this retreat meets the requirements for participants in Jack Kornfield + Tara Brach’s Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Certification program through Sounds True. 

This retreat is suitable for US, Australian, and Asian Time Zones. 

In this weeklong retreat, you’ll be guided to cultivate qualities of heart and mind that help you remember and realize your own inner abundance. Through practices that support kind presence and simplicity, we’ll explore what it is that nourishes our hearts, and supports ease, presence and embodied awareness. There will be daily meditation instruction and guidance, and include periods of movement meditation (e.g. walking), stationary meditation (e.g. sitting, standing, lying down), mindful eating, Dharma talks, practice discussions, and rest.

Retreat Testimonials:
“One lovely and surprising aspect of being on retreat at home, was getting to embody my home life in a very mindful way, which revealed that I don’t always bring a lot of mindfulness to my daily routine. I was a bit alarmed to see the multiple ways I check out of my life every day, and I don’t think that would have been as obvious if I were not in my own home. 

As a person with a disability that can oftentimes limit my ability to travel, seeing the world open up to online events has given me opportunities I otherwise would not have had. So when we create a life after COVID, I am encouraging organizations to remember those of us who have difficulty getting out and about under the best of circumstances.”

“I enjoyed the online retreat experience, in particular I felt the themes and schedule were really well done. It felt like a lot of thought went into the daily practices and that each day built on the last. I was skeptical that an online retreat would feel disconnected, but the teachers did a fantastic job of tying everything together. I especially appreciated that they referenced each other in their talks – to me that signified the planning, listening, and care in putting this together. I also really appreciated the amount of stationary meditation sessions, including the add-on of keeping the Zoom room open so that others could remain logged in for the optional sessions later in the evening. I loved the group meetings, the allocation of time for q&a during the morning guided meditations, and the time at the end of the retreat to post in the chat for everyone to see.”

“This retreat delivered what it advertised and much more. I highly recommend it. Despite my reservations, the zoom format and doing it from home worked really well and my cat loved it too!”

Dana/Generosity: 
There will also be an opportunity to offer Dana for the teachers and center at the end of the retreat. Thank you for your support!
