30774288_1529631614728574_r.jpegWelcome to Prescott Insight Meditation's Giving Campaign to fund our annual week-long silent retreat! 

Freeing the Heart & Mind Through Presence and Generosity


This is a true pay-it-forward retreat, which happens only with your contributions. This unique annual retreat is fully supported by generosity, heart-based giving; giving without expecting anything in return. All contributors, from each registrant to the organizers; from the site owners to the teacher, freely give of their time, effort and means to make this retreat happen. All donations to this event are authentic acts of generosity to promote generosity in all beings, everywhere.

This year's retreat is scheduled for May 5-11, 2019. There is no fee requested for this retreat. According to the oldest known Buddhist traditions, the teachings of the Buddha (Dharma) are to be freely given. This free giving is only sustained by the ancient tradition of dana, a Pali word, which literally means giving. We follow this 2,600 year old tradition of offering the Dharma freely so that the teachings are available to everyone interested regardless of socio-economic status or financial means.   

Donors like you, as well as retreatants themselves, are encouraged to offer financial contributions in an open-hearted act of giving. In so doing, we develop our ability to let go, practice careful lovingkindess,  and honor our innate inter-connectedness

Amazing, isn't it? 

As the Buddha says:

And what is the accomplishment of generosity? Here, a noble disciple dwells at home with a mind free from stinginess, freely generous, open-handed, delighting in relinquishment, one devoted to charity, delighting in giving and sharing.

May all beings be happy. May all beings be free. May we all continue to be inspired by how practice of the Dharma unfolds! 

All donations will be received by Carol Cook, founder of Prescott Insight Meditation, and placed in an account designated solely for retreat planning. Please contact us for more information.


With Great Gratitude,

The Prescott Insight Meditation Generosity Retreat Planning Committee
