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

The Buddha often spoke of life in this world as an uneven path that constantly challenges us to walk evenly.  This seems as true as ever 2,600 years later in a world that is fraught with multiple trials, including climate change, divisive public discourse, the epidemic of gun violence, and even the comparatively mundane challenges of work-life balance.

The storms affect us deeply on multiple levels of our being. In this meditation retreat we’ll practice with an attitude, approach and meditative techniques which encourage the mind, the body, the heart and the nervous system to calm down.  As we calm down we can rest more deeply, resource ourselves more fully and begin to access an intrinsic well-being that is available even when conditions are difficult.  This ability to reset and to start again refreshed is the cornerstone of resiliency. 

The retreat will be held mostly in noble silence.
