Subscription Fees For New Course Participants

The subscription rate for our current course is US $160. This brings 10 weeks' tuition via the online Course Campus, personal support for your practice (by e-mail with the course teacher) and includes specially recorded audio guided meditations and chants.

Please note that anyone in genuine financial difficulty may contact us before applying to discuss paying by instalments over a longer term or, when necessary, a reduced subscription fee.

Homelands Places

Our FREE subscription offer for South Asia

If you were born and currently live in one of the traditional homelands of early Theravada Buddhism we are able to offer a limited number of places on our online courses free of charge. This programme applies to those native to - and permanently resident in - India, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Nepal, Burma, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Cambodia and Laos. You must also be able to access the course daily from your home country. Homelands places are always in high demand and it is advisable to apply as soon as possible on the special Homelands form. The special form for the April course will appear here from March 7th. Please DO NOT use the standard application form below for Homelands places.

Subscriptions For Previous Participants

Concessionary rates available to all previous participants

If you have participated in any of our earlier online courses you are welcome to join us for the new session at a substantial discount: the standard version for US $95 including the downloadable audio material. Note: Our Parisa scheme is an alternative way of subscribing that provides ongoing support, access to future courses and new monthly material.


If you would like to register for the forthcoming course, you will need to complete our online application and pay the subscription to secure a place. Once we have received your form and payment we will normally write to you within 7 days (or within 24 hours in the week before a course) to confirm your place.

Completion of our application form

We need to know a little about you if we are to be able to support you during the course. We'll ask you for your contact details and also that you tell us something about your experience and reason for wanting to take the course. This provides the opportunity, if you wish, to let the course leader know of any issues that may need to be taken into account during the 10 weeks we will be together. Payment can be securely made through Stripe using most Credit or Debit cards.
