Dana is a Pali word meaning “generosity”. Considered priceless, the Buddha’s teachings have been given freely since the time of the Buddha. That 2500-year tradition continues today. In keeping with this tradition, teachers do not charge for their services, but are sustained by the generosity of their students. Registration fees cover only the operational expenses of the retreat. There is no expected amount, but you are encouraged to give generously to the extent you are able. There will be an opportunity to offer dana to John, the staff and DZIMC, at the end of the retreat.


In the spirit of lovingkindness and ethical behavior, DZIMC will follow all CDC, state, and local mandates regarding COVID-19. In addition, for the safety and wellbeing of our community, Dharma Zephyr encourages, but does not require, that participants at our activities and events be vaccinated and boosted for COVID-19. To care for all who attend our events, we ask that if you are sick (cold, cough, sore throat, runny nose, etc.) or have had a fever, vomiting or diarrhea in the 24 hours prior to an event, that you not attend the event.

You will be required to provide proof of a negative COVID antigen test (home test) taken within 48 hours of arriving at Camp Galilee. If you have medical insurance or are on Medicare, free tests are available at most major pharmacies. DZIMC will have some tests at the check in.
