Payment: Wisdom School December 2019

The total cost of the December 2019 Wisdom School is $695, and includes deposit, tuition fees and materials, as well as lodging and meals for six days at the Claymont Society in Charles Town, West Virginia. Payment in full is due upon notice from the registrar.  The tuition fee is fully refundable up to one week before the beginning of the school. 

We would like to make the retreat available to all who apply, independent of financial means. To this end, we have established a scholarship fund and can also set up payment plans.  If you need help with the program costs, you can apply for a Wisdom School Scholarship. You can make a contribution to our Wisdom School Scholarship Fund or add scholarship help to your payment below.

Please check the confirmation letter sent to you if you have questions about your tuition payment. Email Bob Sabath at or phone him at 202-531-7572 if you have questions about payment due or want to discuss what payment is affordable for your situation. We can also help find nearby lodging if you prefer that option.

If you would prefer to make your payment via check, make out your check to Friends of Silence and send to Friends of Silence, c/o Wisdom School December 2019, 120 Jubilee Lane, Harpers Ferry, WV 25425.

If your means allow, please consider adding $50, $100 or more to contribute to the scholarship fund.

If you have been accepted into the school,  you should have received an email detailing how much you owe -- what you have paid, any scholarships, and amount remaining to be paid. 

If you have received a scholarship, you can also use this form to pay any remaining tuition that is due.
