Course Fees

The charge for courses varies and the individual course description details the charge for the course excluding accommodation.

Weekend workshops are residential and accommodation is charged at the rates shown above.

Dharma courses are on a donation basis. However, we hope you will give generously to help cover the expenses of High Lamas who travel great distances to give precious teachings at Kagyu Samye Ling.

Weekend workshops start on Friday evening at 7pm - unless stated otherwise. Please register at the Reception Office before beginning.
