About Giving

Donations to the One Heart Zen teacher, John, makes it possible for us to expand programs and sustain the vision of an engaged Zen practice in the world. Thank you very much.

Dana Paramita is the Buddhist practice of generosity.  Teachers for our retreats do not receive anything from registration fees.  Instead teachers are supported through gifts of dana.  The act of giving itself is the essence of dana practice, not the ascribed value of what has been given.  Attending a retreat and being present is a gift in itself.  Helping to organize a retreat can be an offering of dana.  And offering money can help offset the time and energy teachers expend in preparing and teaching programs.  All dana offerings are received as equal and with gratitude.
