Dakini's whisper MEMBERSHIP
Become a Member!
Dakini’s Whisper is an online community dedicated to realizing our true nature and
awakening its deepest and most fulfilling potential for the benefit of all beings.
One of the inherent principles of Dakini’s Whisper is the motivation to assume responsibility for the welfare of all beings. We live on a large planet and in a hugely populous and diverse global community. We aspire to open our minds and lives to encompass and care for the welfare of all others.
We recognize that each potential sangha member has unique personal circumstances that frame their journey on this path. Therefore, to support the community at large, we offer a flexible membership model based on each individual's capacity at a given time.
Setting up membership tiers to give those who pay greater access to more resources, materials, and special offers do seem to be standard across dharma communities, for us, it would perpetuate a model of privilege, access, and capacity that breaches our ethics for equity, inclusion, and service. Therefore, each member of a given tier or level has equal access to Dakini’s Whisper benefits and offerings designated at that level.
This membership model offers benefits both for the contemporary student as well as the sustainability of the Dakini Whisper sangha:
FLEXIBILITY BASED ON ONE’S FINANCIAL CAPACITY
ACCESS FOR STUDENTS IN DIFFERENT CIRCUMSTANCES
SUSTAINABLE RESOURCES TO KEEP THE LINEAGE ALIVE
MONTHLY AUTO-RENEWAL THAT KEEPS BOOKKEEPING SIMPLER
We ask members to participate based on an attitude of goodwill and to choose a membership model based on their financial capacity at this time. Our offer of a $29/month unlimited membership is intended to help those truly in the most need. For those of you who are more fortunate, we appreciate your consideration of the higher investment membership models. We trust that each of you will choose the membership level which you feel most reflects your capacity and the value of your experience with us.
Dharma teachings, transmissions, and group practices are offered online in a variety of formats including classes, focused series, public events, retreats, eLearning, and opportunities for community dialog and connection. Time for sharing and Q & A following each class. This is an invaluable time for questions about the nuances of your practice or to deepen your understanding by hearing the questions that others are asking.
Your Membership Helps Sustain the Sangha!
Your membership is the main financial resource of our organization, providing reliable income for our operations including the living expense of our dedicated teacher, scholarships, and financial support for those unable to pay at the higher level, and other operational fees.
As a Dakini’s Whisper member, you are expressing commitment to your own growth in this community by keeping Dakini’s Whisper and the stream of lineages alive while receiving the fuel to sustain your candlelight burning in our sangha. Continued engagement in Dakini’s Whisper supports all that is unique about Dakini’s Whisper, including specifically the:
Mission to bring ancient wisdom to our daily life
Promotion and preservation of the lineages of the Ear-Whispered Chö
Accessibility to multiple programs, retreats, events
Possibility of financial support and scholarships for membership, local and worldwide
Development of volunteer activities as Dana to support membership fees
Development of eLearning courses
Support for our teacher
Connection of worldwide Dakini's Whisper practitioners
While the membership model is intended to provide the necessary financial sustenance to keep Dakini’s Whisper and the stream of lineages alive, gifts of dana in the form of financial contributions are encouraged/welcomed at any time as appreciation for a teaching, a personal interview, practice instruction and so on. In order to give the gift of Dana, please see our Donations Page.
