Ticket options explained (green ticket button at top)

The teaching is offered freely in accordance with the Insight Meditation tradition. During the retreat you will be invited to make a voluntary contribution (Dana) for the teachings. Please read more about Dana here. Payment taken for the ticket is toward the cost of running the retreat (+ EventBrite fee);

We offer a range of ticket fees from freely given to a sponsor rate . No one will be turned away through lack of funds.

Please pay the sponsor or standard rate if you can. If most people pay this we will cover our costs during the course of the year.

The Sponsor rate includes an additional £5 donation to help support all to attend, regardless of means.

The Standard rate covers the cost of the venue, administration and teacher’s travel costs.

The Supported rate is offered for those whose income is too low to pay the standard rate.

The Freely Given rate is offered to make our events as accessible and welcoming as possible. We recognise that in the current political and economic climate many struggle to pay for food and housing, let alone meditation retreats. We offer this rate particularly for those who have little or no financial support, for example: young people, people who are homeless or vulnerably housed, asylum seekers or those who are living on state benefits.

(Our Retreatant Support Fund supports those who access our Freely Given and Supported Rates. There will also be an opportunity during the retreat to contribute to the Retreatant Support Fund which helps us to keep our retreats accessible to all, regardless of means.)
