Aware that Swiss prices are costly and represent a big financial effort for most members of our European Sangha, our center strives to maintain rates as low as possible, whilst ensuring that its events break even. To this end, we make a special appeal to those participants who can contribute with a donation so that least privileged members may also take part. We thank you in advance!
It is a Ripa Supporter’s privilege to deduct the monthly contribution twice a year from the summer and winter annual retreats. (for ex. If you give 50 CHF monthly, you can deduct that amount from your registration fee of each of the two annual retreats).
You can also choose to offer this amount to cover for part of the retreat fees of a student in financial difficulties.
