PRACTICE GUIDELINES  WAYS TO GIVE


 

THE PRACTICE OF DANA

da⋅na /dah’na/ [Sanskrit] n. the act of giving


The practice of dana is fundamental and integral to Centre of Gravity programs, maintaining our space, and offering teachings. Dana means accessing one’s own quality of generosity, and recognizing the interdependence of teaching and your support. This has been a central thread of Buddhist practice and community since the time of the Buddha.

 

Giving lets our hearts step out of the all too common profit and loss mentality of our culture. It creates empathy and builds connections based on the true value of shared experience. Dana also keeps us connected to our financial commitments and how and where we give.

Please consider the value of your experience with Centre of Gravity Sangha and help us continue to offer these programs for others. The amount you give depends on your circumstances.

The guidance Michael gives is to offer between 10 and 20 dollars minimum for classes (meditation and yoga respectively) and from 50 to 100 dollars per day for retreats. If you can give more, please do. Nobody is turned away for lack of funds. If meeting with teachers other than Michael, please discuss dana with them individually.

You may write cheques to Centre of Gravity Sangha or you can pay with cash or through Paypal.

We offer profound thanks for your support and practice.
