Mahamudra Centre is an FPMT Tibetan Buddhist retreat centre set in the stunning Colville Valley on the Coromandel Peninsula, North Island, New Zealand.
Our peaceful atmosphere and lovely gardens provide a tranquil, relaxing environment for individual and group retreats. Drop-in visitors are welcome to see our beautiful Buddhist artwork, have a cup of tea or coffee, and browse our shop. Starting in August 2018, on weekends we’ll be offering yoga, the option to book a massage, short demonstrations and classes, and as always our free daily guided morning meditation. Many visitors fall in love with our quiet valley, so stay on in our accommodation to take a break from busy life and more fully experience this unique opportunity. We ask that all visitors follow our guidelines to make everyone’s stay the best possible experience.
Buddhism is a psychology of the mind, so we offer a variety of courses exploring what makes us happy, how to meditate, and how to develop a good heart. Many of our programs are open to anyone who would like to attend, but we also provide more in-depth retreats and teachings for practicing Buddhists. Be sure to check our Events page for our courses, retreats, family events, as well as our calendar for times we might be closed for special retreats.
Our facilities can also be rented by other groups looking for a place to explore spirituality and develop peace of mind.
Mahamudra Centre is affiliated with the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT)
