Dana The Buddhist teachings are considered priceless, and teachers do not charge for their services. Dana is the practice of giving. It manifests the fundamental interconnectedness of life and is a way for us to support the life and work of the teacher. There will be an opportunity to make a donation to Michael either with your registration or at the retreat. For normally employed people, $90–150 is suggested.
Scholarships Partial scholarships may be available. Our ability to offer scholarships depends on donations to the scholarship fund.
