OUR VISION

Our vision is to create a meditation centre in the hills on the outskirts of Almeria town.  In keeping with our core values, the centre will be run on a purely donation basis and will be open to anyone who wants to practise meditation with sincerity and dedication.

The centre will comprise two main sites.  The first of these, a gorgeous area of hill land that we affectionately call Paradise, will be used for medium-term and long-term meditation retreats.  The second, a farmhouse on the outskirts of town, will be used for teachings and talks, and will be home to our world class Dhamma library.

We also hope to re-wild much of the surrounding shrub land, to work with the local community, and to establish a network of local group sittings to support our lay practitioners in their daily lives.

If you would like to help us in working towards this vision then please read about how you can join us or make an offering.


OUR PARADISE

We call this place Paradise, and to us it is. It’s impossible to capture the peace and beauty of this space in a photo, but we welcome you to come and see it for yourselves.  Our hope is to turn this abandoned land into a place for medium-term and long-term meditation retreats.  We would like to keep the living conditions here simple, with a minimal impact on the natural environment.

We are currently fundraising in the hope of buying this land. All donations will be greatly appreciated. If you would like to make a donation click here.


OUR FARMHOUSE

This is the last farmhouse on the road out of Almeria town. It is easily accessible from the town centre, and yet is in a peaceful location, bordered by the uninhabited hills. Our hope is to turn this land into a Dhamma Centre for talks, teachings, courses, and group meditation sittings. We also hope to use this land for our world-class Dhamma library.

People living locally will be welcome to come and use the space for practice whenever they like, and we will also have some basic accommodation and camping space for people coming from further away.
