FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE AND ASHRAM
Recent surveys of universities and colleges with online courses show that in 54% of cases the online courses cost more than full-time on-site classroom attendance. There are several reasons for this.
One of the reasons why some courses are more expensive to present than another is the cost of tutors. At PrajnaParamita School we use professional tutors with excellent qualifications in their field. Our classes are small and manageable. We have to transfer one-on-one skills of very intricate nature no other educational program can do —developing spirituality within your framework, hand to soul skills, heart to soul skills, intuition development, relationship between you and your spiritual guides, healing soul organs and their connections to physical body, working with soul minds and body minds, transcending your culturally conditioned thinking, learning to work within a multi-cultural, multi-ethnic and multi-religious environments in ways that are respected by peers in the healing industry. For PrajnaParamita to transfer these skills, we need small classes, highly qualified expert teachers and time, and all of that relates to money.
Fortunately, professional Pneumatherapists earn decent wages. As a professional, you are in an entirely different class than the average ‘energy worker’ or Reiki practitioner out there. Take a look at what people expect to pay for professional pneumatherapy services around the world. Prices in Vietnam, India, Thailand and Cambodia are about 30% to 50% that of prices in the western world—meaning prices in most western cities will be 3x to 2x more expensive. Consider for example the offerings of a very busy clinic in Cambodia, Angkor Wat Wayist Spiritual Energy Center.
Some fields, like Wayism studies are less expensive to present as courses, and our fees reflect that. However, at PrajnaParamita School our teacher of Wayist Philosophy is the world’s most recognised authority on Wayism. He is a prolific author of books and Wayist material. Teacher +Yajn (Mr. Jean du Plessis) is accessible to students via our courses, but because of the limited access to his time, one-on-one access is available as an option.
GRANTS based on country economy
Roughly based on the GDP and Big Mac Index, students living in certain countries may apply for study grants. These grants are substantial. They range from 15% to 40% of the tuition fees depending on the economy of the student’s country.
The logic of “country economy grant %”.
The formulas used, and the economic philosophy behind this is flawed, not perfect (but so is science, knowledge, morals, religion and politics). We attempt to have a non-negotiable, single, standard policy that makes tuition costs fairer across the board and honours the balance to do no harm to our school’s ability to provide the best schooling, best material and best (read expensive) software, servers and professors.
In Cambodia the low wage is $150 per month. A well-qualified teacher earns $500 per month, a veterinarian can charge no more than $30 to spay a cat, and a restaurant can charge no more than $1.80 for a basic meal—a Cambodian who saves up for tuition can save 10% or $15 with some hardship. Whereas in Canada, which is still below par with the USA, a low wage is $1,800 per month, a well-qualified teacher earns $6,000 per month, a veterinarian can charge $350 to spay a cat, and a restaurant can charge $15 for a basic meal—a low wage Canadian who saves up for tuition can save 10% or $180 per month with some hardship, more than 10X that of a Cambodian.
There are three groups of countries eligible for grants in our grant % tables, each group may apply to a different maximum.
Grants Applied at End
Grant monies are calculated based on the standard cost of the full program. Grants are a % of the standard fees and are paid toward the final Units in the student’s course, at the end of the program.
Example: A student resident in India may apply for a grant to a maximum value of 30% of course fees. For example, the standard fees for a course may be $3,000. She applies for the maximum of 30% grant. Her application is successful and the grant of $900 is awarded her. Therefore, she will pay only $2,100 of the $3,000 standard fees. She pays standard fees per Unit up and until she has paid $2,100 then the rest of her course is paid by the grant.
Example Course X – standard fees $3,000 (30% grant was awarded, $900 that is. Student will pay only $2,100 )
Unit 1 – price $750 (she pays $750)
Unit 2 – price $500 (she pays $500)
Unit 3 – price $1,000 (she pays $850, grant money pays $150)
Unit 4 – price $250 (she pays $0, grant money pays $250)
Unit 5 – price $500 (she pays $0, grant money pays $500)

The ashram program defers most tuition fees.
Students from anywhere in the world may apply for residence and fee-free training in the Ashram Program.
Presently, the ashram program is offered only in Cambodia.
Who can Apply?
Pneumatherapy students who have completed Introduction to Pneumatherapy and Certified Pneumatherapist Unit 1 may apply for the ashram residence training program. Best is, start your application half-way through Unit 1.
Pneumatherapy students in the ashram training program do not pay for studies. They receive basic board and lodging and half-uniform, and some transportation, but work at least 4-hours per day in various programs (apart from normal housekeeping duties) and the rest of their day is available for online and other studies. The quality of training and hands-on experience that one gains from ashram attendance is unsurpassed as one racks up thousands of hours in meditation skills, contact with clients and running programs and clinics. Pneumatherapy students who arrive at the start of Unit 3 spend six to eight months in ashram training before certification.
