While there’s no fixed fee for our events, we ask you to be generous to One Mindful Breath
All expenses incurred in One Mindful Breath events have been covered by the generosity of those who enjoyed previous events. To enable us to continue to offer a space for people to practice, we welcome your dana (koha) for the teachings, and for the community.
By offering events on the basis of dana, we help to create an economy based on generosity. Generosity has sustained dharma teachings since the time of the Buddha, around 2500 years ago. Paying forward in this way, your generosity will be greatly appreciated by people you may never meet. In this post, the US meditation teacher Sharon Salzberg writes beautifully on the need to take a chance on generosity.
