Cost of Events

Why Do We Have Fees for Events?
Ideally the Dharma would be offered for free. In fact many people offer their time and energy selflessly to make these events happen. And in fact we endeavor never to exclude anyone from participating because of inability to pay. However our events typically incur many expenses, from airfare for visiting teachers to food for participants.

Dana for Visiting Teachers.
Dana supports visiting teachers who greatly enhance AZC's offerings.
