About Tempel

Registration Information

Weekend retreats, classes and workshops at the Dharma Center have a 2-part “cost:”  Because the teachings are considered priceless and are to be supported by Dana (a voluntary, anonymous offering of no specified amount) we ask that you consider making a Dana offering to the teacher, in gratitude and support of the teachings – as best fits your circumstances and brings you joy in giving.

Secondly, we ask a sliding-scale registration fee to cover Tempel’s expenses and the cost of putting on the retreat.  Scholarships are always available and no one is ever turned away for lack of funds.  To apply for a scholarship, click here.
