Register for Natural Dharma Fellowship’s 2024 Margha Program

November 1, 2023 - December 31, 2024

The focus of the 2024 Margha Program is the Bodhicitta practices of love and compassion. Participants will learn a series of contemplative practices to deepen in love, self-compassion, compassion for others, wisdom, forgiveness, sympathetic joy and equanimity.

(The alternate year’s program focuses on practices of Natural Meditation, which facilitate, develop and deepen experience of the nature of mind.)

It is Natural Dharma Fellowship’s aspiration that no one be turned away from our programs and retreats because they are unable to pay the full cost. The Margha Program is offered on a sliding fee scale in which you can choose the amount that best fits your financial needs. There are three suggested payment levels:

  • Benefactor: $360. For those who can afford it, this fee level helps provide support for those with limited financial resources and assists with the care and development of the Margha Program.
  • Sustaining: $225. This fee covers the basic cost of the Margha Program.
  • Supported: $135. For those with limited financial resources or recent financial hardship.

However, if these three suggested payment levels do not fit your financial situation, you may enter any amount on the registration page.

The program entrance fee does NOT include the cost of on-site retreats at Wonderwell Mountain Refuge in Springfield, NH or the online component of these hybrid retreats, which are charged separately.  Nor does it include the cost of required books, generally two per year.

Financial aid: Financial aid opportunities are available through Natural Dharma Fellowship to offset the cost of residential retreats.  For more information, please visit the Work-Study Scholarship page on the NDF website. Depending on the type of work you do, you may also be eligible for a Hemera Contemplative Fellowship to attend Margha retreat. For more information and eligibility criteria, please click here.
