Suttavada Foundation does not own any of the venues where retreats are held, but rents them out for the duration of the retreat. While we would like to offer free retreats for everyone, we are not yet there, and need the help of retreatants to cover costs. Thank you :-).
Please let us now if costs would be prohibitive for you to join. We’d like all to have access to the dhamma, so we would like to offer scholarships. Also, if you can and are inclined to contribute for scholarships to others, that would be highly appreciated. Sadhu!
Scholarships: We are more than happy to waiver costs for monastics who want to attend a retreat.
For lay practitioners who can’t attend a retreat otherwise, we can sometimes take off 25%, provided there are funds available.
Please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for inquiries. Thank you.
