Download and complete your application. Applicants are asked to assess their priorities and perspectives as well as their limitations and abilities, and to reflect on challenges and influences on their path in life. The skill of open, gentle self-reflection is a quality the trainee will continue to cultivate during the Academy in order to engage the process of meditation effectively and to develop confidence in practice.

Ask for a personal reference letter from someone you are close to, who can speak to your character and abilities.  This letter can be sent to you, and submitted along with your application.

Pay the Application Fee

Please read The 3 Doors Academy Terms and Conditions prior to submitting your application.  If you are accepted into the Academy, you will be asked to agree to them in order to officially enroll in the Academy.

Submit your completed application and letter of reference as attachments using the “choose file” links at the bottom of this page. Once we have received your completed application, we will send notification of your acceptance within six weeks.

A registration deposit of 6500 MXN is due thirty days after receiving your acceptance letter. You will be sent a link to make this payment, along with your acceptance letter. If you choose not to enter the Academy after making this payment, you will receive a full refund minus a US $75.00 processing fee. After the first Academy retreat begins, this payment is non-refundable.

Four weeks prior to the beginning of each Academy retreat, you will pay tuition of 18,750 MXN. Late payments, made less than 30 days prior to each retreat, will result in a penalty of US $25.00. If you are unable to attend one of the six Academy retreats, tuition is still due and arrangements must be made with your mentor to cover the missed material in order to complete the Academy commitments and graduate with your group.

Your application fee, registration deposit, and Academy tuition payments will be made in US dollars. The dollar amounts you see will always honor your agreement with The 3 Doors regarding the cost of the Academy, and will be calculated using the average exchange rate in the last 30 days. If by the end of the Academy, currency exchanges have resulted in a surplus for The 3 Doors, these funds will be deposited into the Latin American Academy scholarship fund. Payment for your accommodations (room and meals) for each retreat will always be made separately from tuition payment. Accommodations will be paid in Pesos, and range from 5,500 to 7,000 MXN.

If you choose to enter the Academy, you will receive an email notification that registration is open, along with payment links, six to eight weeks before each of your retreats. Please contact info@the3doors.org if you have any questions.
