Can I book without using PayPal or a credit / debit card?
Yes, you can book by bank transfer, please contact us and we will send you our bank details. We prefer not to take bookings by cheque as it adds to our administrative workload.
Can I attend an event without booking?
Usually yes, but do check the events page on our website before you turn up as some events fill up and we have to close bookings.
How do I know if there are spaces available at an event?
Please go to the calendar of events and click on the one you’d like to attend. This specific event page will show ‘book now’ buttons if there are spaces available. If it is fully booked, it will also be noted on the event page and you will be able to sign up for the waiting list.
Why is financial support for the teachers not included in the registration fee?
By leaving financial support for the teachers out of the registration fee we are supporting a tradition of generosity that goes back to the time of the Buddha. This allows both teachers and students to practice generosity as they work together. For more info see giving
If I cannot afford the supported rate, can I still attend an event?
If you cannot afford the supported rate please contact us. In most cases we are able to offer further reductions or free places.
Are your events suitable for beginners?
Most of our events are suitable for both beginners and experienced meditators. A few events are only suitable for experienced practitioners. This is always clearly indicated in the events page for the relevant event. Each year we hold a few beginners’ evenings and one or two courses for beginners.
What is your cancellation policy?
If for any reason you cannot attend, refunds are available up to 72 hours before an event.
If you cannot attend because of illness, unexpectedly having to look after someone, or a domestic crisis, we will also refund your booking up to 72 hours after the event.
For a few events, such as longer courses, refund policies will differ. This will be clearly indicated in the event information on this website.
Please note that we cannot transfer your booking to a different event.
