UOCA operates by donation as all true spiritual teachings must not be charged for but freely offered out of loving kindness. It is your chance then to make a gift to us at the end of your retreat.
Cost to us of Retreat/Residence and Donations:
DONATIONS ARE ONLY ACCEPTED AT THE END OF THE RETREAT UNLESS OTHERWISE AGREED.
The end decision as to what to donate is up to yourself and is a gift to yourself from the heart. If you have difficulties financially or are uncertain please contact us.
YOU ARE UNDER NO OBLIGATION TO MAKE A DONATION.
UOCA will be a non profit under a trust and is to be a charitable organisation, we do have minimum costs to run the centre that are far below commercial charges in order to assist as many people as possible; therefore consider this as an opportunity to show generosity and to offer generously.
Volunteer work is a way to offer if you have no money, as can gifts of food, furniture and equipment or if you have difficult financial or health circumstances.
Generally your donation should be at least double the booking fee as a starting point for the total gift.
To prevent people booking then not turning up and causing others to miss out, we do have a booking fee that is not refundable unless we cancel.
On the last day internet access will be given to you to make a donation via Paypal.
