Tuition rates are indicated below. All learning materials, classes, and mentorship sessions are included in the cost of tuition.

We ask participants to contribute 3-5% of their annual income as tuition for SVARA’s Pedagogy Chaburah.

Should this tuition scale be beyond your means, be in touch with Laynie to explore further reduced rates. A sample tuition calculation may be seen below, and we invite participants to calculate their own tuition rates when registering for the program.
