The retreat is free. However, I’m obliged to organize a group of supporters who can help me raise $500 which will go towards charity. Asking for alms is meant to help us witness and understand the lives of people living on the street. Traditionally, Buddhist monks used to support themselves in this way. In fact, it is a great practice of generosity and gratitude thanks to which we can observe what happens with our minds when we ask, give or receive.
I’d like to take with me as many friends as possible. It is enough to donate $1 to become a part of my retreat. Your support would put a smile on my face and help to strength my practice. Each person will be symbolically present as a bead on a mala which I will wear during the entirety of the retreat.
If you decide to support me, you can choose one of the ways:
- (GoFundMe): https://www.gofundme.com/dobek-dc
- (Paypal): https://paypal.me/pools/c/8eBYbh5Dwa
- (mBank – PLN): Dobiesław Pałeczka, 43 1140 2004 0000 3402 3014 2660
I’ll keep you updated on my blog.
