* Most PIA Mind Centre retreats/events are completely dana based. Dana is a Pali word, which means generosity. The teachers in our programs donate their time in service through their teachings and only receive amounts donated by participants at the end of the retreat. The PIA Mind Centre charges a program price that covers our food, facilities, and staff costs. Unless specified, dana is not included in this price. Below the program price, we have listed a suggested dana amount in an effort to give participants an idea of what a traditional offering might be for each retreat; however, no minimum amount is required.
