Samatha meditation is given freely to anybody wishing to learn
There is no charge for the teaching and no charge for attending local classes or courses at Greenstreete, the national centre*.
* Except Introductory Courses at the National Centre which have a fixed charge. Course fees for Introductory Weekends: Wage-earners (including those on a pension other than the basic state pension), £120 Unwaged £60. Introductory week: £200; unwaged £100.
How Are Courses Funded?
Generosity is a cornerstone of Buddhist practice and Samatha relies completely on the generosity of its supporters. Samatha activities are funded by donation. People attending local weekly classes are asked to give a contribution towards the hire of the room and refreshments. Those taking part in weekend or longer courses at the National Centre in Wales give an amount they feel is right. We believe relying on voluntary donations is in accord with the Buddha’s teaching. Gifts of money to support the organisation are, of course, always welcome.
