Generosity, loving kindness and a world transformed by mindfulness and contemplative practice are the values at the heart of our mission here at Copper Beech Institute. It is in this spirit that we offer financial support to those who would otherwise not be able to afford our programs.

Two forms of financial support are available: 1) scholarships and 2) fellowships for certain professions and selected retreats.


Full and partial scholarships for day and overnight retreats, courses and events are made possible through the Boundless Heart Fund and the generosity of the Angell Foundation. To apply for a scholarship, please complete our Scholarship Application Form.

Contemplative Fellowships

Thanks to the generosity of the Hemera and Aetna Foundations, we offer full or partial financial support to artists, educators, health care professionals and nonprofit professionals who wish to learn the benefits of mindfulness which they, in turn, may embody and apply in their work and in the workplace. We offer several overnight retreat options for each type of fellowship.
