Our program tuitions are set at a level needed to support the Center. However, it is our commitment that no one be prevented from participating in our programs due to financial constraints.
Please help us continue to bring these teachings to the world by offering the most you can afford.

By being generous in this way you join us in offering these teachings to everyone regardless of their ability to pay the full tuition.
If the tuition for a program presents an obstacle to your participation, we trust your judgment; for most programs, you may offer whatever level of tuition is workable for your situation. Contact our Registrar, Abbey Pleviak, prior to the start day of the program to pre-arrange a tuition that will allow you to attend.
