WHO SHOULD JOIN: This event is suitable for practitioners of any level of experience, both beginning meditators and advanced practitioners. We welcome meditators near and far to join us for the online meditation experience.

REGISTRATION: Registration is required for this course. Registration fees are non-refundable. To register, select an option under the Tickets heading at the bottom of this page.

COURSE FEE: The sliding scale fee range is from $250 to $40. This includes support for IMSB and the teacher. The lower end of the sliding scale is intended for those with limited financial means. We encourage you to choose the highest level that is appropriate for your economic situation, and find joy by supporting our teacher and IMSB.

TAX DEDUCTIONS: The base registration fee of $80 is not tax deductible. Donations above the base rate will be considered voluntary contributions and are deductible for any amount that is over the base rate. Each January, the IMSB treasurer sends donors letters that acknowledge the amount given in the previous year that is above the base rate; this serves as documentation for tax deduction purposes.

CANCELLATION POLICY: All fees and payments are non-refundable. If it becomes necessary to cancel participation in a course, and the registrar is notified prior to the start of the event, your registration fee (less a $25 processing fee) will be converted into a voucher creditable towards the fee for a future IMSB program. Vouchers must be used within one year of the initial course start date, and may be transferred to only one future course.

DANA/DONATIONS: IMSB relies upon the generosity of participants to support our teachers and cover organizational expenses. Dana is a word in the ancient Pali language that describes donations, offerings and generosity. Since we are using an online registration system for this online event, we encourage you to give joyfully and generously by selecting the highest rate that is appropriate for your resources and means. Additionally, donations are always gratefully accepted for both Teacher Dana and IMSB’s General Operations through our Donation Page where you will find alternative ways to give. IMSB is a 501(c) (3) organization. Donations are tax deductible as permitted by law.
