A note on dana (generosity)
Most IMS teachers—like insight teachers around the world—rely on the generosity of students for their livelihood and receive no compensation from course fees. All IMS online teachers are offered a dana guarantee by IMS to ensure they receive a minimum level of financial support for this offering. (Click here to learn more about the dana practice.) There will be an opportunity for you to offer a contribution to teachers at the end of this course.
