Generosity, loving kindness and a world transformed by mindfulness and contemplative practice are the values at the heart of our mission. It is in this spirit that we offer need-based scholarships through our own Boundless Heart Fund as well as contemplative fellowships for certain professions, thanks to the generosity of the Hemera and Aetna Foundations.

Fellowships for Professionals


Hemera’s Contemplative Fellowships for Professionals

The Hemera Contemplative Fellowship Program was created to make the unique benefits of a sitting contemplative practice in a retreat context more widely available.  Fellowships are available to anyone with a commitment of service – a deep desire to devote oneself to serving others through their work.  Eligible applicants must be 18 years of age or older and working full-time in their profession.

Need-Based Scholarships


In addition to our fellowships, we offer generous need-based scholarships for all of our programs.
