Request the gift of a scholarship

Scholarships are made available to the extent possible for this course, as well as all retreats and courses we offer. We always attempt to not turn anyone away for lack of resources, believing that one antidote to the painful inequality in our society is to build relationships based on generosity, transparency, and trust.

For retreats and courses with a sliding scale, the bottom of the scale is the amount that allows us to “break even” on the event, and scholarships are offered for practitioners who need to offer a lower amount. Our ability to offer both a break even cost and scholarships depends on everyone who has the resources to do so offering above the base price. We are grateful to be part of a community that is generous enough to make this radical practice possible. We’re all in this together.
