A weekthün is a week-long group meditation practice that provides a precious opportunity to deepen your connection with the different stages and techniques of shamatha/vipashyana practice. The program's strong container is an excellent way to establish or re-establish an ongoing daily meditation practice that will permeate your life on and off the cushion.

For this special winter weekthun we are offering free tuition to those with financial need.  The only charge is for lodging.   

*Please note that rooms in the lodge are full so you may be asked to stay at a nearby location or on the shrineroom floor.

Full program tuition $480 plus accommodations:  We invite all who are able to do so to pay the full tuition rate.  By doing so, you make it possible for us to offer scholarships to others, while also covering the direct cost of your stay here and contributing to our year round operations.   Interest free payment plans for 6 months are an option for those who choose this tuition level. 

Discounted program tuition $240 plus accommodations:  If the full tuition is unworkable for you, please pay the discounted rate if you can.  By doing so you contribute towards the cost of your being here and everything it takes to keep DDL operating year-round.

Discounted tuition plus payment plan $40/month:   If having 6 months to pay makes the discounted tuition possible for you, please choose this interest free option.   The payments would be $40 per month for tuition; if you add lodging to the payment plan it would be $87 per month in the Lodge.

Please Note: Tuition prices include meals but not accommodations.  For winter programs, double and triple rooms with shared hallway bathrooms are available in Gyatso Lodge for $35 per night, so for this program the lodging cost would be an additional $280.   If you are interested in a single room, please contact us about two weeks before the program begins, and depending on the number of registrants, we may be able to offer you this option for an additional $40 per night.  Huts and Cabins are not available as lodging options for winter programs.

All program costs at Dorje Denma Ling are workable. With either of the tuition choices above, we can provide a payment plan of up to 6 months, and we also match all scholarships that local Shambhala Centers grant to help their members attend programs. If you have any questions about the financial aid or payment plans, please contact us at 902-657-9085 or via email at [email protected] at least two weeks before the program begins. Please note that we cannot arrange tuition discounts at registration.
