Dharma Gates: Making Intensive Meditation Accessible

Making Intensive Meditation Training Accessible


We seek to embody the principle of radical transparency in our pricing structure. Monastic life should be accessible to all, and many monasteries are supported largely by donations from the lay community. If you are interested in living at a monastery and are serious about your practice, many will let you stay for free. It is not necessary that all young people who are looking for a monastic experience do so through our program; we aim to help young people who might not otherwise make the leap to do so, and to help make the process as smooth as possible.

The price of our program is negotiable, and we hope to be able to make the program available to all, no matter their financial situation. The full tuition price is for those who can afford it. Please email us at astryker@wesleyan.edu and we will do our best to accommodate you.
