Sonoma Shambhala Center Generosity Policy

We strive to make the Shambhala teachings available to all, and at the same time, offering flexibility for differences inherent in individual circumstances.

During these times of Covid 19, our center endures due to the financial contributions of program participants and the monthly donations from members and friends. These contributions provide for our monthly rent, practice & study materials, and teacher expenses. The fee for each program reflects our costs to offer that program.

For our programs, if you can offer the requested donation amount, that is much appreciated. If it is possible for you to offer more than the stated amount or even the “Patron Donation,” please consider this, as it allows us to make these programs available to those who may not have the means to afford the full program price.

If, after contemplating this policy, you feel the tuition presents an obstacle to your attending the program, you are welcome to donate whatever amount that is comfortable for you.

Thank you for whatever you are able to offer.

If you have interest in becoming a member of Sonoma Shambhala, please visit our membership page for details.

Shambhala is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and exists only because of the generosity of donations from people like you. We deeply appreciate your support.
