Hello everyone, The vision is to be able to run workshops and offer retreats at no cost to those who attend, to bring teachers to New Zealand, to produce resources that will help people develop their practice of the dharma and make them freely available -- in the end to help create a culture of generosity. Before Winton Higgins's weekend in Wellington, this was just an idea. Now it can be seen to work, and it works well. It is heartwarming to be able to report that not only were all the costs of Winton Higgins' weekend in Wellington covered but there is some left over to enable us to start planning future events. Thank you all.
