Generosity Policy

“Generosity is the virtue that produces peace”
(from the Sutra of the Recollection of the Three Jewels)

The Vancouver Shambhala Centre is a non-profit organization run entirely by volunteers and supported by the generosity of its members and programme participants.

It is our commitment that everyone, regardless of financial resources, feel welcome at all our programmes and events.

If the cost for a programme presents an obstacle to your participation, please contact the registrar for your programme in advance to discuss paying a reduced cost. Generosity is what enables our centre to share these teachings with others, so please offer the most you can afford. This helps ensure the continuity of our programmes and sustainability of our Centre.

If you have the means to help offset the cost of another’s fee, we encourage you to consider donating a higher tuition.
