Being True - frequently asked questions
Can I come for part of a workshop?
You can’t learn to swim without getting your hair wet, you wouldn’t back out of a root canal part way through and you don’t get much out of personal awareness workshops when you dabble in them. Sammasati experiences can have a profound and lasting impact in your life but that doesn’t happen magically; it happens through your earnest participation. The encouragement to come to know the depth and breadth of yourself and others is rare, it’s essential, and the effects are cumulative. Everything we do together contributes to the wholesomeness and ripples out far beyond the weekend. Why not come for all of that?
Sometimes people have a genuine choice to make between a workshop with us and another life affirming possibility. If you find yourself in that position, and you want to talk it through, email email@example.com or call Ashanti at 250.298.8270.
What is an appropriate donation?
We offer workshops by donation so anyone can join us without money being an impediment. There is no ‘normal’ or ‘reasonable’ amount to give. We hope people will take their financial position into consideration and contribute what feels appropriate to their individual circumstances bearing in mind that this is one of the ways we make our living. Don’t worry too much about the donation at this point. The important thing is your intention to participate. An amount will make itself apparent to you while you are in the group. We trust that……and are grateful for whatever we receive.
If we stop being grateful we’ll stop working by donation.
