Generosity Policy

Finances should not be a barrier to the practice of meditation or receiving the Shambhala teachings at the Fredericton Shambhala Centre.  We are committed to making our programs accessible to everyone.  As a non-profit organization supported by program fees, donations and the energy of many volunteers we offer these pricing options:

  • Regular Price: This is the regular cost of the program, and helps cover operating costs of the centre as well as specific program costs like paying teachers and providing food.  If cost is an issue, please refer to our Generosity Policy, below.

  • Patron Price: For those who can offer more than the regular price, we have a patron price. Your generosity in offering the patron price helps cover the costs for others who are not able to pay the full price.  

  • Generosity Policy: In order to make our programs accessible to everyone, we have a generosity policy. If the program price is an obstacle for you, please decide what amount works for you and offer whatever you can.  We appreciate any monetary or volunteer contributions you may wish to offer.  Please contact us at [email protected] prior to the start of the program.
Our Generosity Policy:
If you would like to use the Generosity Policy, we ask that you do so prior to the start of the program by emailing [email protected].
Your financial situation should never be a barrier to participation.  We invite everyone to engage with the practice of generosity by asking, “How much am I able to give?” .  Sometimes we can be more generous than other times, and that is perfectly normal.   Sometimes we can stretch and sometimes we cannot.  By offering your generosity in whatever amount you can at this time, you join us in offering the Shambhala teachings to the world.
