Invitation to Contribute to the ‘Whole Life Path’ Scholarship Fund

Your contribution to the ‘Whole Life Path Retreat’ Scholarship Fund will support the spirit of giving and receiving that nourishes this retreat.  Scholarships are granted on the basis of financial need. In addition, they support the intention to foster a community that is inclusive and diverse in age, gender, sexuality, capacity, race, and ethnicity.   It also will support Insight Dialogue Community (Metta Pograms) teachers and facilitators to benefit from an extended retreat opportunity.

The Guiding Sangha of Insight Dialogue Community (IDC)/Metta Programs is generously underwriting a portion of this fund. Gifts from you or your practice community will help greatly to increase the number and amount of scholarships that can be offered. Gifts that support others in our communities to attend the retreat will be beneficial for all. When one grows in the Dhamma and in practice, we are all enriched as individuals and in our community.

May all acts of giving and receiving nourish the cultivation of joy, release and non-grasping that is fundamental to this path we walk together.
