Mahamudra Centre for Universal Unity
Mahamudra Centre for Universal Unity is a Buddhist Retreat center, offering visitors opportunities to reflect, meditate, listen to teachings, practice and actualize the un-mistaken teachings of the Buddha.
The Centre is situated on 8 acres in the inspirational setting of Colville Valley, Coromandel Peninsula. Surrounded by meadows, woods and the lovely hills of the Coromandel range, our ambience is conducive to peace, calm and healing. We are in close proximity to beautiful beaches and sea views, the historic mining town of Coromandel (20 minutes drive), and along the way to the breathtaking Port Jackson.
We offer a variety of structured retreats and teachings exploring what makes us happy, how to meditate, and how to develop a good heart. Most of our retreats are open to anyone who would like to attend, but booking is essential. The courses and retreats cater for those with no prior experience, as well as more in-depth teaching retreats for practicing Buddhists. Visit our events calendar page for a summary of our courses, retreats, practice days and community events.
Visitors are welcome to drop in for our daily meditations (8.30-9am) in the Gompa or stroll our gardens or stay a bit longer as a guest making use of our accommodation options, ranging from camping to shared facilities to self contained private cabins. We usually close our shared facility accommodation during retreat programs, leaving only self contained cabins available for non-participants.
Our Universal Unity Shop is located in the Main House. It offers a range of beautiful gift items as well as providing support materials for Buddhist study and meditation. We stock a range of Buddhist statues, books, incense, prayer flags and prayer beads as well as many Tibetan and Nepali hand-crafted goods.
Our office hours are 10am to 5pm daily. Please feel free to contact us for further information.
