We’ve raised an amazing £79,580…
but still need £40,420 to complete Kurukulla’s home!
We have exciting news!
Renovations of our coach house into a home for the very large Kurukulla statue have begun!
Lama Zopa Rinpoche kindly advised us to create this statue to enable Land of Joy to flourish and succeed as much as possible. The building complex will create space for a new gompa to house Kurukulla, additional single & twin roomed accommodation and a meeting room/extra practice space.
Amazing support during a previous campaign we ran for the project, along with ongoing generosity from those who have visited or supported us from afar has already raised an incredible £78,000!
Some of this has already been used for Peter Griffin to start creating the Kurukulla statue and we are now on the verge of starting the renovations of the coach house, but will not be able to finish it.
A further £42,000 is needed to allow us to complete the renovation, which will provide a home for Kurukulla and much needed extra rooms for those staying at the centre, along with a second practice space.
Why is it so Important?
Increase our overall capacity, allowing more people to benefit from being here
Provide single and twin rooms not currently available as an option while staying at the centre
Offer much needed facilities for retreatants with mobility limitations
Allow us to offer a programme of one day & weekend retreats, regular meditation sessions and other activities to the local community alongside our main programme
Increase our ability to generate additional income through renting out the facilities for compatible events such as yoga or mindfulness retreats, something which is important for our long-term financial stability
The additional gompa (Kurukulla’s room) will…
Provide a place for the Kurukulla to be housed. How wonderful to be able to fulfil the clear wishes of Lama Zopa Rinpoche!
Offer an additional private space for meditation, puja and retreat for appropriate initiates
Provide a place where further offerings can be made
What will be Inside?
The Ground Floor will have….
Two much needed single / twin rooms, one of which will initially be used as an additional practice space/meeting room to begin with.
Tibetan-style Kurukulla gompa
The First Floor will have
Two long awaited twin/single bedrooms with ensuite facilities!
