The Tuesday Evening Meditation class is offered on a dana/donation basis, we are supported by the practice of shared generosity. No one turned away due to lack of funds. Suggested dana/donation of $10-$20 supports our renting of the space and the work of our nonprofit the Mindfulness Care Center. We are here for everyone to gain new insights into life, themselves and inner healing.
