Our meditation center exists entirely by generosity (dana), we do not charge anything for our meditation programs or staying overnight.

Kuti Project

The compost toilet and sink room in this kuti block project is now finished . There are still two single rooms left to finish. Donations are still being accepted to finish this project. See our Gallery page for the pictures.

We are renovating the old horse stable on our property to make a few single self retreat rooms. I have dedicated the work on one of these ‘kutis’ in the memory of my mother who passed away on August 15th. It is now finished. I would like to thank all those who had donated for that. We will finish the work of adding a bathroom and two more meditation rooms  next Spring, for which we will need more funds.
