Heartbeat Scholarships

IMG_9696Each year Heartbeat provides several scholarships to make the practice of retreat and pilgrimage accessible to all. Our goal is to deepen an individual’s spiritual journey and to ground, sustain, and enhance their efforts towards healing and transformation in their own unique context. While on pilgrimage, participants learn spiritual practices to cultivate compassion, mindfulness and foster a spirit of collaborative action. Ideal candidates demonstrate experience and ongoing work towards peacemaking, healing, and transformation in the world. Demonstration of financial need is a requirement to receive scholarship funds.
