The first thing the Buddha often taught to lay followers is the practice of dāna, or generosity. When we give freely from the heart we feel a natural sense of joyfulness and belonging. This inner experience, when consciously recognized and fostered, creates an important foundation of relational sensitivity and connection for the rest of the path to Awakening.  The teachings of the Dharma are considered priceless – beyond material value. Traditionally, monastics sharing the Dharma are supported materially by the lay community. In this spirit, we endeavor to offer our time and guidance as spiritual friends, freely whenever possible.
