  • Foundation Program (FP) Membership for $80/month (for registered Foundation Program students). Minimum commitment: duration of the FP book study, or one year (including summer holiday months)
  • Benefactor Membership ($100 or more a month). Your monthly donation of $40 or more above your GP membership or $20 or more above your FP membership earns a tax deduction. Benefactor membership also includes:
    • FREE retreats (at our Centre)
    • FREE half- and full-day courses
