Requirements to be accepted are:
- Previous instruction in basic meditation.

Please respect this virtual retreat as if you were practicing in the Chan Hall. Allow enough space in the comfort of your own home for seated meditation. Let your housemates know that you should not be disturbed. Do not distract yourself with talking, reading, or checking your phone.
Floor cushions or a meditation bench would be best if you have them. Although a sturdy, comfortable chair where the thighs can be level with the floor is acceptable as well.
This event is priced on a sliding scale. Please consider paying at the highest rate that you can afford. Your generosity supports Dharma Drum Mountain, staff, your fellow practitioners and our continuous efforts to help people to learn and grow.
When you submit your application, select one of the sliding scale rates below. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
Any amount paid above the Base rate is a tax deductible donation to DDRC. Your confirmation email is your tax receipt.
