Important note about Donations (Dana) to the teachers:
Following a 2500-year-old Buddhist tradition, the teachers offer the retreat free of charge. Instead, they are supported by voluntary donations from their students. You will have the opportunity to make a completely voluntary donation at the end of the retreat for the support and well-being of the teachers. (All funds paid at registration go to the expense of holding the retreat.)
