New Retreat Cabin Fundraiser

Already Sponsored $74,500 NZD
Needed $15,663 NZD
Sponsors $1,000 NZD and over will receive a free week accommodation in the cabin

INCREDIBLE! A very generous benefactor has sponsored a new retreat hut at the centre.  It’s currently being built in Hastings and will be transported to the centre early in June and nestled into the bush (sharing the land near the Shambala hut).  The hut will also have a deck along the front. We’re looking for sponsors to help cover the cost of building permits, plumbing, drainage, electrical, painting and furnishings – see below.  Donors of $1000 and over will receive a free week’s accommodation in the hut.   Please don’t feel any pressure when you receive this – I’m just putting it out there and whatever comes is great.    A huge thank you to Katrina and Doug from On All Flooring in Thames who have kindly offered to sponsor carpet not just for the hut, but for all our rooms! How extraordinary and  something to remember next time you’re looking to buy some carpet!

Already we have a booking for the hut with an experienced retreatant coming over from India to do retreat in August for 3 months.   How wonderful to be able to accommodate and support serious practitioners in retreat.

How to Sponsor

Sponsorships can be made in any amount by bank transfer (see below), or online on our Give A Little Page. (Please note – the Give A Little website now charges a 5% processing fee, so please consider adding that fee to your payment so it isn’t deducted from your donation to the centre.) If you are coming to the centre, we also take cash, Eftpos, and credit cards.
