Pay What You Wish Tuition?

OB photoAs our world faces even more uncertainty and turbulence, we’re being moved to respond to this suffering in a big way: Classes with optional tuition.

The amount of tuition you pay is up to you. You can make a one time or recurring tuition payment via credit card with PayPal or with online banking through Zelle.

Please note: We are unable to offer refunds on memberships or tuition payments.

Not everyone who meditates is interested in Enlightenment; however everyone can benefit from meditation.
Meditation and mindfulness:

  • increases awareness,
  • improves concentration,
  • decreases stress,
  • slows aging,
  • teaches us acceptance of ourselves and others.

Dharma Center is a privately-owned business. We encourage those who find value in our classes to pay what you wish, even if that is nothing. We’ll also continue creating a space for those ready to dive deeper and invest in their spiritual education by periodically offering retreats and special intensive workshops.

Membership subscriptions are available! Dharma Center Members support our work of sharing meditation and assisting the Awakening of those who wish to free themselves from suffering. Members also have access to recordings of past dharma talks via the online archive library.

Dharma Center is undertaking an experiment in radical generosity, and it’s success depends upon you.

The tuition collected for classes pays the rent and insurance for the room and for teaching supplies, such as informational handouts, music, furniture, advertising, and office supplies. Memberships also pay for these expenses. To keep costs down, we have wonderful volunteers who help run Dharma Center.

We are relying on the concept of an Exchange of Gratitude to finance our center for meditation and self-discovery. The Exchange of Gratitude concept means that people understand the need pay for a place to explore the teachings and practice because it provides an important benefit to their lives.

A spiritual discipline will help you develop personal power. Without a stable base on which to build, spiritual progress is unlikely. To rise above the suffering of the world and enter into the higher mind states, a certain amount of power is required. To go beyond all mind states and enter Samadhi, even more power is needed.

Utilizing your personal power appropriately, that is spending energy and money on the things truly important to you, are the first steps towards serious spiritual development. Paying for your spiritual practice is one small way to send a message to yourself and Eternity that your practice is important to you.

The amount of tuition you pay is up to you.
