The Skillful Meditation Project has the policy of not soliciting for financial support. We do not send out fundraising letters or engage in any marketing campaigns. The teachers offer their time free of charge.
In order for this method of not asking for money to work, there has to be trust in the generosity of those who are benefiting from our work. There can only be trust in someone’s generosity when that person performs acts of giving. Without your spontaneous, or considered, acts of generosity, this method of supporting the teachers and teachings of the Skillful Meditation Project will not bear fruit.
Whenever you feel gratitude for this approach to meditation and its effect on your life, please remember us. While the feeling is still alive, please make a donation. If you have an amount in mind that works for you, please give that much. If you want to give more than you can afford, try giving half that. If you are shy about giving and consider only sending a small amount, try giving twice that. Your gift will most likely be the appropriate amount for whatever service, guidance, or knowledge you have received. It will be honored and appreciated by us. You will never get a letter or email from us asking you to give again, or help fund a project, or anything of the sort. Your gift from your heart means so much to us, why would we disrespect it with greed for more?
Our greatest hope is that you continue with your meditation practice. That is truly the gift of the Dharma.
