In the Buddhist tradition, the teachings are considered so precious as to be priceless; they are given freely, with the opportunity to offer voluntary donations, or dana.

dana-statueDana (pronounced “dah-na”) is the ancient Pali word for “spontaneous generosity of the heart” or simply, generosity.

We are a small group and all of our expenses are supported by dana.

For virtual events, the suggested dana is:

  • morning retreats with visiting teachers $20
  • Saturday morning metta workshops $5
  • 4th Mondays with Larissa Kitenko $5
  • any offerings for Monday meditation sits are welcomed
