It is traditional to make an offering to express ones's appreciation for the opportunity to practice, and receive dharma teachings. Even hearing a reading, contemplating, and discussing, creates a situation for learning, understanding and insights to arise. By making an offering, you also help to sustain an environment, either physical or virtual, from which others may benefit. If you feel inspired to do this, around £10 -£15 is suggested, but please offer whatever you like. In order to make an offering, please click the "Registration" button - you will be sent our bank details.
As it says in one practice, "Generosity is the virtue that produces peace" , and however large or small it is always valued.
