Tucker is able to offer individual meditation teaching sessions, either in-person or over video chat. These individual meetings are the only dharma teaching that Tucker does for a fee, rather than by donation. The charge for these sessions is a sliding scale from $185 – $300 for 50 minutes or $95 – $150 for 25 minutes. Students may choose the appropriate place on this scale for themselves.
The rationale for this session fee is that Tucker is a psychologist, and an individual meditation session requires buying an hour of his therapy clinic time, so this is the same rate as therapy. While even the upper end of this scale is a fairly low rate for a mid-career psychologist in the San Francisco area, if you are looking for meditation teaching at a lower cost from someone who is not a psychologist, please contact Upasaka Upali or Kynan Tan.
These individual sessions are the only dharma teaching that Tucker does that is not by Dana (donation), so if you’d like to work with him and can’t afford the rate for an individual session, please join him weekly at the SF Pragmatic Dharma Club or either class of eSangha, or at a retreat!
