Of course the entire Coromandel area is a fantastic place to visit with many activities to offer.

Upcoming Courses

25 – 30 Sept: Drawing the Mandala of Tara with Andy Weber

5-7 October: Mindfulness as a Way of Life with Hedwig Bakker

Prayers and Pujas

We have special prayer ceremonies called pujas for healing of body and mind, finding inner peace, removing life and health obstacles, and creating a closer connection to our spiritual guides every month and on special holy Buddhist days. We also have special animal blessings and liberation ceremonies (for all creatures great and small). They are planned based on the Tibetan lunar calendar, so the days of the week vary, but you can check our calendar what’s happening when you’d like to visit. You can also sponsor offerings or a puja to benefit your friends and family (see our prayers and pujas page for details).
