By Catherine Graham A glimpse of the beaming face of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, especially in these queasy times, is hugely uplifting. It’s like the sight of ray of sunshine after weeks of grim rain. Consistently over the decades, media pictures show him laughing......08 February, 2020
Let Us Help
We see people transforming their lives every year, creating happiness and manifesting wisdom, truly ending the cycles of dissatisfaction and destruction in their lives. We know exactly how important the Dharma can be.
That is why we never turn away anyone for lack of financial resources. We will gladly work out a payment plan with you. If you need even more assistance, we offer several scholarships that should suit the needs of everyone. In order to include everyone who applies, please note that the scholarship deadline is one month before retreat begins.
We realize that budgets can be tight and that you know your financial situation better than we do. With this in mind, we’ve set up a payment plan option that allows you to decide the amount and timing of your payment. Just figure out how many weeks or months it will take for you to pay off your retreat in installments of the amount that seems manageable to you.
To set up your plan
Contact our office by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 1-800-531-4001, ext 1 and complete a Payment Plan Agreement to register for your retreat. Come enjoy the Dharma!
Note: When setting up a payment plan, the minimum deposit of $150 is required to register.
Though we prefer you use a payment plan if possible, we do have several scholarships to meet any need. If none of these scholarship options are right for you, we will work with you to make other arrangements. Please do not miss an opportunity to study, practice, and know the Dharma because of financial concerns.
Accommodations for scholarship recipients will be either the main dormitory or camping.
The deadline to apply for a scholarship is 30 days before the retreat begins. We will notify you about your scholarship at least 2 weeks prior to the retreat.
