About Course Fees
The collected donation fees include the general operating costs to put on such programs. Retreat registrations help support the center to keep everything operating, allowing us to invite so many precious teachers, and to hold this precious space of 70+ acres of secluded redwood forest to allow guests to have the quiet, contemplative space to continue spiritual growth.
Financial Aid/ Scholarships
We want to make the Dharma available to everyone, so no one will be turned away from this wonderful online course. Simply use the “Pay What You Can” option to sign up for free – offering your time and practice to make this book’s material valuable to to the world. Addtionally, on registration you will find other options, if one would like to “Pay it Forward” to help sponsor others who may not be able to cover the usual operating costs for these programs.
Traditionally, spiritual teachings are considered priceless. Vajrapani will make an offering to the teacher at the end of the course, and we will share the teacher’s paypal too if others want to donate directly to the teacher.
