If Aotearoa Buddhist Education Trust were to receive a significant donation, here are just some of the possibilities:

  • halve the cost at one retreat for all attendees
  • pay for two retreats for a small number of retreatants away from the main centres
  • underwrite a month long retreat for perhaps 10 people
  • develop partnerships with more local groups and national organisations
  • help the process of teacher development, bringing more teachers from Australia, Europe and the USA in particular for this purpose
  • support the development of meditation apps, both in English and te reo Maori
  • buy land and develop a purpose-built retreat centre

We encourage you to consider how secular insight meditation communities might develop here, and what you could do to make those dreams come true. Do please talk with the trustees if you have something in mind, in particular if you would like to leave a bequest in your will.
