How did the rose
Ever open its heart
And give to this world
All its beauty?
It felt the encouragement of light
Against its being,
We all remain
Too frightened.



The running of Suluk Academy truly "takes a village" and much of the help received is from volunteers. Suluk gratefully acknowledges all the volunteers who, over time, have helped create and run the Academy—from those in an advisory capacity to those who have helped create curriculum (the Suluk Retreat, the Alif Supplementary Training, the modules that are being distributed to the centers—to name a few) to the website team, those who helped develop Suluk West's blended hybrid format, photographers and to those who on the ground help make each Suluk session run smoothly. 

Volunteers are always welcome! Please call 518.794.0185 or email if you would like to volunteer.

One of the greatest gifts one can give to Suluk Academy is financial support to the Scholarship Fund. Suluk has never turned anyone away for financial reasons. This has been possible because of our past donor's support of the scholarship fund! In each of the Suluk trainings, 15-25% of a given class have been scholarship recipients. Those recipients could not have afforded to come without your financial support. Scholarships are given based entirely on need. So please consider giving—no amount is too small. If you are able to give ongoing support, please consider making a monthly donation to the scholarship fund—we can make it easy for you by setting up an automatic monthly charge on your credit or debit card. You can make a one-time donation using the Donate button below.
