Fire-up the Dharma

$11,655 of $30,000 goal

Help us install a new heating system at Sudarshanaloka Retreat Centre so we can run retreats all year round.

Main image

At Sudarshanaloka Retreat Centre our busy retreat season is spring to autumn when the weather is warmer. Retreats in the winter, in our unheated house, are more challenging and mainly for the hardy. By installing a heating system we will be able to run retreats all year round, with cosy study spaces, warm dry bedrooms, and oodles of hot water.

When we ask our supporters and retreatants what we should improve about Sudarshanaloka this is the number one suggestion. Help us meet our fundraising goal so that we can be even more effective at helping people explore and deepen their Dharma practice - all year round.

About us

We are part of the International Triratna Buddhist Community, which includes the Wellington, Auckland, and Thames Buddhist Centres.

Use of funds

The money raised will go towards purchasing and installing a wood-fired central heating system with a wet-back for hot water and radiators in each room. Any extra money raised will go towards developing our fire-wood processing systems.

Thanks for the Anapanasati to Awakening retreat. Kamalashila has a uniquely organic way to lead us quickly into the depths, and a fresh approach to old themes. Especially thanks to the Thames team who coordinated the whole event and the additional meditations. Leading the meditations, technical handling, through to the virtual bouquet at the end, it all seemed to go very well.  I especially liked the Sudarshanaloka Fundraiser video ‘Fire Up the Dharma’.  A great piece of work.
