"The Natural State is like a great ocean; all beings are equally encompassed by it. There is no difference in this Base; it is the same everywhere because it transcends time and conditioning. So, it is present in us now, and we can have access to it". (H.E. Lopon Tenzin Namdak Rinpoche in Reynolds 2006)

Example of how to calculate the retreat amount

Simulation : You are in rate 2, you wish to take all the meals and be accommodated in a twin room if you tay one week and arrive on Saturday afternoon and leave the following Friday.

The calculation will be as follows

  • 6 days of teaching (morning and afternoon) 6X30€ = 180€

that is 180 € to be paid to the congregation

  • the annual fee (if you have not already paid it): 33 €.

  • Accommodation in a room with 2 beds : 6X18€ = 108€.

  • full-board meals: from Saturday evening to Friday lunchtime included) 6X20€= 120€

that is  255 € to be paid to the association

So a total for the week of 441€.
