Offers and Financial Help.
Enabling anyone who wishes to come to Lerab Ling
Our commitment is to enable anyone who wishes to come to Lerab Ling, to have access to the program, whatever their financial circumstances. We offer different options for those who cannot afford the standard fee.
The Standard Fee of our events barely covers our operating costs, but we offer it to balance our needs with those of yours. For our financial health, we need as many retreatants as possible to pay the Standard Rate, but we acknowledge that for some people it is not possible.
All teachings given at Lerab Ling are offered free of charge. The fees for attending teachings and other events are set to cover travel costs and other expenses of hosting teachers and presenters, as well as organisational costs. It is our aim to keep the fees for all retreats and events as low as possible.
