About This Event

Led by Inseus founder, Ashley Nelson, this Vipassana style Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Meditation retreat will help you:

The Dāna Tradition

In keeping with Vipassana and Buddhist traditions, this is a donation-based or dāna retreat.

Dāna is an ancient Pali/Sanskrit word meaning "generosity," "giving" or "gift." It is directly related to the Latin word donum and corresponds to the English words donor, donate and donation. Dāna is intrinsic to a 2500-year-old Buddhist tradition. Going back to the days of the Buddha, the teachings were considered priceless and thus offered freely as a form of dāna. The early teachers received no payment for their instruction, and in turn, the lay community saw to it through their voluntary generosity—their dāna—that the basic needs of food, clothing, shelter and medicine were provided for these monks and nuns.
