Wednesday Night Meditations

With various team members from Land of Joy

As we’ve had to temporarily cancel our events and therefore can’t welcome you onsite, we decided to record a meditation for you every Wednesday.

We hope imagining we are all sitting together in the Gompa or community room at Land of Joy while listening to the recordings will help you to continue to meditate with us and maintain your connection with all the community members who usually join us at Land of Joy.

If you are new to our Wednesday Night Meditations and would like to use the recordings to support your practice at home, it might be useful to know each session is divided into two 20 minute sections. We try to present the meditation techniques in a secular way so that it doesn’t matter what experience you have or what you usually practice. We emphasise a lot of Shamata (single pointed meditation) as well as some guided analytical meditations which are aimed to help you reflect on various topics in your life. This reflection can then help to develop a deeper understanding of how the mind works, which in turn could help with getting get to know ourselves better and more deeply.

Happy meditating and we hope to see you again soon.

Big love from the Team at Land of Joy.

A Way to Say Thank You

Please use the form below if you would like to make an offering to Land of Joy as a thank you for making these recordings available. Any offering will be a big help and very gratefully received as the unexpected closure of the centre is having a big impact of our finances. However, we very much appreciate many people are experiencing economical and financial challenges during these unpredictable times and therefore might not be able to support us right now.

Thank you and may you be happy.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Boost your donations by 25% at no cost to you! A Gift Aid declaration allows us to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I confirm I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Land of Joy will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When we receive a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
