Generosity Policy

“Generosity is the virtue that produces peace.”
―from the Sutra of the Recollection of the Three Jewels

The Philadelphia Shambhala Center is a non-profit organization run by volunteers and supported by the generosity of its members and program participants. We are committed to making both meditation practice and the programs we offer accessible to all. Financial constraints should not be an obstacle to taking part. At the same time, the costs associated with running the Center are accurately reflected in our program pricing.

Our Generosity Policy makes our registration process a contemplative practice of generosity where, if the program price is not presently workable for you, we invite you to contemplate how much you are able to offer. Paying what you can is a gesture of support for our Center and its mission.

Our policy also encourages generosity for those who can offer more than the regular program price through “Patron Pricing,” as a way to pay-it-forward. This option enables us to cover costs for those who are not able to pay the full program price.

We thank you for your generosity. To register using the Generosity Policy, please contact: [email protected]
