Financial support is needed to defray the expenses of monastics
teachers traveling from Plum Village to lead and attend retreats
and days of mindfulness, and to offer financial support to
many who desire to attend the events but do not have the financial
means to cover the cost of food and lodging.
- A $40 donation will allow a low-income Palestinian or
Israeli to attend one day of the retreat.
- A $200 donation will allow a low-income Israeli or Palestinian
to attend the full five day retreat.
- A $1000 donation will cover the air fare for one monastic
flying from Plum Village. It would be wonderful if communities
around the world worked together to make it possible for
participants from their Sanghas or regions to attend the
June events and to financially support those in Israel and
Palestine who wish to attend, but otherwise cannot because
of the lack of financial resources.
Contributions can be sent directly to Being Together as One
(c/o Shelagh Shalev, PO Box 376, Jerusalem, 91103, Israel).
U.S. taxpayers can make a tax-deductible donation by sending
a check through the Washington Mindfulness Community. (Make

TOGETHER". Send to Washington Mindfulness Community,
