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.

In the event that these spots have been claimed and you’re interested in attending please email [email protected] to be added to the financial support waitlist.

In addition, we offer Payment Plans in a variety of amounts and durations (ie: If the class is $100 you can make 2 monthly payments of $50 or 4 monthly payments of $25). For payment plan requests, please email [email protected]

Refund and Event Policies

“When we are undistracted and completely resting, this is our true nature. That’s both simple and profound.”
— Dza Kilung Rinpoche

Relaxation can restore us from the depleting shocks of this challenging historic moment. The intention of this retreat is to allow the body and mind more time to come into balance naturally, so that we can continue to engage in the meaningful work of transforming our communities.

Let’s come together, then, and support one another to take one day for restoring our deeper connection with being.  Instructions will be drawn from teachings of Dza Kilung Rinpoche, a Tibetan meditation master, encouraging us to open the heart of awareness while remaining as relaxed, inclusive, and natural as possible.

The day will open with an intention – that we practice for the sake of all beings.  Within this frame, we will invite our bodies to relax, and simply breathe.  Later, we will encourage our hearts and minds to include all experiences.  Hardships and joys can be embraced from openness and love. A deep recognition of the genuine goodness of our own hearts, the hearts of other beings, and the goodness that exists in life itself can become the basis for simply allowing life to unfurl in our experience.  

As our bodies let go with awareness, long standing habits of tension can release.  Heart and mind may discover that obsessive thoughts and afflictive emotions can loosen more effectively within a spacious, accepting attitude  than when we rush in to focus, fix, or stabilize.   

A spacious schedule will be offered.  There will be a sequence of short guided practices on Zoom, alternating with times for movement or walking.  During the ‘breaks’ there will be instructions and encouragement to carry the relaxation into daily activities.   Short Dharma talks, a lunch break, and a chance to share questions and comments will round out the retreat.
