Retreat fees vary depending on the length and location of the retreat. Retreat fees cover the rental of the retreat facility, insurance, printing costs for any study material, and other miscellaneous administrative costs. Residential retreat fees also cover housing costs, food, and cook’s services.
Retreat fees do not include wages or compensation for the teachers. The teachers rely solely upon the voluntary donations of retreat participants. We follow the custom of giving donations/offerings (dana) to support our teachers. A bowl is set out at the end of each retreat for donations. We ask that each participant practice generosity in a way that is appropriate for the individual, supports our community and teachers, and cultivates the joyful practice of giving.
