Attending the 10-day retreat at Gaia House was transformative! Literally opening up an unknown inner landscape and way of being. It’s strange because at times I mainly felt fear and doubt! In my background it’s not common or possible to be able go to the countryside for a meditation retreat so I am very, very grateful to all those who have made the FAB Fund possible and helped change my life. Thank you!”

The cost of retreats is kept as low as possible to ensure that everyone who seeks the wisdom of the Dharma can attend. With this intention in mind Gaia House offers the option of supported and subsidised rates, as well as assistance through the FAB Fund, to those for whom the standard rate is too high.
Our FAB Fund is funded through cancellation fees, sponsor rates on group retreats and generous donations from retreatants.
In 2018, 27% of all places on retreats were supported by the FAB Fund. It is a very important way for Gaia House to fulfil its purpose of making the teachings of the Dharma available to all.
