About Scholarships

Dharma teachings are considered precious and beyond any monetary value.  Therefore the Dharma cannot be sold or bought.

This is the ancient way of preserving the purity of the teachings and the authenticity of the lineage. Dharma teachings are given from the heart in the spirit of dana (literally, “generosity”) and may also be received in the spirit of gratitude – without the slightest consideration of reciprocity.

The Dharma is always without cost.  Production and other services to provide online teaching are not without cost.  Supporting the teacher, the teachings, and the process with dana is an ancient (and now modern) tradition and is unique to each person’s means.

To embody this spirit of generosity in modern times, we have created a sliding scale for our offerings to honor individual situations.  If the low end of the sliding scale is still not affordable, we invite you to request a scholarship for weekly classes by writing to QigongDharmaDana@gmail.com

We are happy to make this investment in supporting your practice, and we are confident that you, in turn, will honor your commitment to attend these sessions.

Please only request scholarships for sessions you can attend.

You will then be given the scholarship passcode to register for the session(s) you select.  Please send your request at least 48 hours before the session.  For special events and depth training, partial scholarships will also be considered by request.

Thank you for registering at the highest payment level that is appropriate and sustainable for you.

All communication is confidential.

Your registration supports and makes online teaching possible.

Support is unique to each person’s ability.

Nothing is expected; everything is appreciated.

Everyone is warmly and equally welcomed!

Thank you for your kind and generous support.

May all beings benefit!

With love and gratitude,

Teja

Our future with COVID-19 is still uncertain.

Presently there are no absolute interventions or cures.

The distance to “post-pandemic” life is unclear.

Yet, we still need to center in our lives and to reclaim order and meaning. We want to establish a positive direction and vision and lifestyle that is realistic and sustainable.

While we can’t control the actions of others, we can cultivate values that embrace compassion and wisdom.

Genuine empathy and compassion is wisdom in action, even with one small step at a time.

Cultivating the strength of our immune systems is among the most extraordinary acts of self-responsibility we can perform. It is not difficult, but it does require a commitment to the knowledge and methods that positively impact our entire human being.

Join us for these multi-layered teachings and practices that enrich well-being by strengthening the immune system and enhancing our hearts and minds’ with centered stability.
