A sliding scale of fees is available for each retreat, dependent on ability to pay. There are three rates: standard, concessionary and donor. These rates cover the basic practical costs of the retreat, including Zen Master Dae Gak's travel expenses from the USA. A concessionary (reduced) rate is available for those in financial difficulties. The donor rate helps us to be able to offer a concessionary rate for those less able to pay. Our teachers offer their teaching freely. Retreat participants are given the opportunity to make a donation to the teacher. This is called offering dana, and this practice of dana has sustained the teachings for more than 2,500 years. It enables teachers to continue teaching and supports the very life and sustainability of the teaching.
If you are unable to meet these rates and wish to attend a retreat, please email us to discuss the possibility of a bursary place, which may be available.
