A word about the cost: The tuition for stewardships is $300 - $500 per month based on your ability to pay. The sliding scale is there to help people with little financial resources be able to have the opportunity to come. We ask that if you are able, to pay near the top of the scale. A $60 deposit will be required upon acceptance of your application. The deposit will count towards your first month's tuition.
A word about Seva: Lama Foundation is a retreat center, and our primary focus in the summer is on the day-to-day service of the retreats. This Seva ( selfless service ) includes preparing and cooking vegetarian meals, cleaning, preparing spaces, and tending to the retreatants' other needs. Of course there are always other projects and opportunities on the land, depending on steward numbers and individuals' skills and passions. Please refer to Summer Steward Information Pages for additional info.
