Working in Nature at Sudarshanaloka

Starts 21 Sep 2018


Giving back to the land

We have been experimenting with these weekend formats for a few years now. And, after the success of our previous events, we think we might have found something which people enjoy and also contributes to the Sudarshanaloka project. One aim is to engage with the maintenance of the land at Sudarshanaloka in a playful, meaningful, and effective way. Another aim of the weekend is to spend time with other like-minded people who enjoy contributing back to the land.

Food will be provided at a cost of $40 for the weekend. Accommodation is free though a donation to help with keeping the retreat centre running would be much appreciated.

Extra opportunities will include a 7am meditation sit each morning and a movie on Saturday night.

If you have loppers, hedge clippers, shovels, gardening implements or any tools you think could be useful, please bring them along.

Come and spend the weekend in nature working with like-minded people.


Start: 21 Sep 2018 at 7:00pm
Finish: 23 Sep 2018 at 2:00pm

Cost: $40 for food for two nights. Accommodation is free in return for your work contribution although a donation to help with keeping the retreat centre running would be very much appreciated.
