I offer my teachings free of charge according to the Buddhist practice of generosity or dana, which is one of the main heart practices. For 2500 years, the practice of generosity has been taught as a way to develop loving-kindness and compassion, deepen an awareness of our interconnectedness, and discover the joy and freedom of non-attachment.
Traditionally in Buddhist cultures, teachers received no payment for their instruction. In return, students saw to it through their voluntary generosity, their dana, that the teacher’s basic needs of food, clothing, shelter and medicine were provided.
I am deeply touched and sincerely grateful for any donation offered for my instruction. I use these donations to support my own practice to ensure that my teachings are continually enriched. Beyond this, I donate dana offered to me to non-profits supporting basic community needs such as animal rescue, public education and social equity.
Student donations can be mailed to Sallie at 1301 Quarry Ct #210, Point Richmond, CA 94801, or use Venmo @Sallie-DeWitt.
