The Tamalpais Shambhala Meditation Group has adopted a payment policy for the programs it offers. Our policy strives to make these teachings available to as many people as possible while at the same time providing flexibility for differences inherent in each community.
Each of the Northern California Centers thrives and survives due to the financial contributions of its program participants, members and friends. Program fees, donations and members’ dues provide for monthly rent, utilities, practice and study materials, teacher expenses, and food for the programs. The tuition for each program reflects our costs to offer that program.
Please contemplate how much you can offer.
If the Patron or Program Price listed is beyond what you can currently afford, please take some time to consider what you can afford and then use the “pay in accord with your circumstance” option when registering and enter the amount that you can offer in the appropriate field.
What is the Patron Price?
The other aspect of our Generosity Policy is our Patron Price. Those who are able to offer more than the regular program price can select the Patron Price option. By selecting this option, your generosity is helping to cover the costs of those who may not be able to pay the full price of the program. Thank you for your consideration, and for helping all to receive the treasure of the Shambhala Dharma.
