Dechen Paldron VThe Yogini Project‘s media projects are a spearhead to raise awareness of the blossoming of the feminine in practice occurring in the world today.

And yet, it is only female practitioners that can make a growing number of realized Yoginis in the world a reality. It is individual women who do this, one by one.  We are here to support.

To this end, we are establishing our Yogini Fund to physically support individual women in retreat, in both short and long retreats, at retreat centers worldwide.

Scheduled to release in autumn 2017.

 

Our primary Yogini Fund is dedicated, as above, to individual women in retreat.  Further specialty funds will be created as our primary Yogini Fund is seeded with an initial $50,000.

These include:

A Yogini Research Fund: To support scholars/researchers in specific research and book projects filling in gaps in coverage of the feminine in dharma.


A Single Mother’s Fund: To support single mothers with both retreat costs and childcare for short teachings and periodic personal retreats.


A Special Yogini Fund: To support exemplary needs for support by accomplished practitioners, translators and individualprojects supporting the feminine in dharma.

Our Specialty Funds are set to be launched in 2018.

The Yogini Network

samantabhadra-partic1Co-emergent with our establishing our Yogini Fund, The Yogini Project will be establishing The Yogini Network.

This will be a grassroots network between The Yogini Project and a select number of retreat centers worldwide.  It is ecumenical in nature.

It’s purpose in function is twofold: 


For female practitioners to discover a source of potential support with the ability to apply for Yogini Fund sponsorship through any participating retreat center


For those that apply direct to the Yogini Fund for support to access an array of retreat options with various locations, conditions, costs, etc.


As the Yogini Fund is established in 2017, dharma centers with retreat facilities worldwide will be able to apply to be part of The Yogini Network.  Accepted retreat centers will be able to refer potential retreatants for Yogini Fund funding for retreat at their centers, as will have potential retreatants referred to them.

It’s intent:  A synergy of support.  The Yogini Network, in effect, provides tangible community-building support for female practitioners worldwide.

May there be benefit in all directions.
