Your donations support meditators that otherwise wouldn’t be able to attend a silent retreat. That means your gift is what made the difference to get someone on a cushion and get the job done.
Our scholarship recipients come from a wide variety of meditation backgrounds, ethnicities, orientations, and nationalities. We prioritize scholarships for students with the greatest financial need, so your gift goes where it’s needed most.
