Season of Gratitude: Stu Jenkins

Season of Gratitude: Jo Ann Prompongsatorn Farrant

We invite you to join in our Season of Gratitude at EBMC!

Giving

At EBMC we operate using a generosity-based, gift economics model. This means we charge no set registration fees to attend our events and instead rely on the generous giving of our community. Program and event participants are offered an opportunity to make a voluntary gift to EBMC during the registration process or at an event itself.

We believe that everyone has an inherent capacity for generosity, and that together we can co-create a thriving spiritual community based on values of abundance, trust, and connection, rather than scarcity, fear, and separation.

The Buddha and other wisdom teachers emphasized that Dana—or generosity arising effortlessly from deep gratitude—is an essential component of spiritual freedom.

If everyone who participates in events at EBMC practices generosity and gives to the level of their ability, the Center will continue to thrive as a spiritual home accessible to all.  We have several opportunities for you to give dana, including becoming a Monthly Friend of EBMC. Please give to the greatest extent you can for the good of all.
