Two Arrows Zen members who are full-time students or recent graduates, those under 30, and members who have life-stage limited income may request to contribute work in service to the community in exchange for partial tuition reduction. Work-trade may include early arrival or late departure to help with set up and closing, as well as extra shifts in addition to the samu period. There are a limited number of work-trade positions for any retreat. Priority is given to supporting young practitioners.
Everyone pays the base rate of $37.50/day for Sesshin, which covers food and other direct expenses. Partial tuition reduction is applied to the balance due. A typical work-trade agreement results in approximately a 30% discount off the member rate.
We will respond to your work-trade request within 7 days. Please watch your email for a Work-trade Agreement from firstname.lastname@example.org.
