NEWS:

The centre is currently closed due to Coronavirus but you can join our regular online meditations.


FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN - PLEASE HELP IF YOU CAN

As many of you are probably aware, Kagyu Samye Dzong Cardiff gets most of the funds necessary to keep the centre running and teach and promote mindfulness from four main sources:
- Donations from drop-in sessions (meditation and pujas)
- Renting rooms in our centre
- Visiting Buddhist Teachers courses

In this difficult time, as with many small businesses and charities, we are at risk of serious financial problems. As you can imagine, our funding sources are severely impacted by the quarantine procedures we all need to take in order to protect our friends, colleagues and loved ones. We have 2 mortgages and all the usual utility bills to pay.

To keep the centre open, and to provide online meditation sessions, and online pujas, we would be so grateful of your support so if you are able to make a donation, please give what you can. 

It's not just about keeping us ticking over though. We have big plans for the future that will help us deliver great mindfulness content and bring meditation practices to more people, across the UK, and elsewhere.

Our online meditation sessions over Zoom have proved remarkably popular so we know that demand remains strong, and that people are interested in receiving guidance online.

We cannot be certain when we can re-open the centre and make in-person courses available again to the local community. This has made it clear that we should accelerate our long term plans to deliver online courses. This will help us reach our existing audience and provide them with ongoing meditation.

There are a number of great platforms available for us to consider, and we look forward to being able to provide more online, as well as returning to running classes in the centre, as soon as possible.

We hope you'll help us continue to support the community and perform our valuable work if you're able. Email admin@meditateinwales.net and we will send you our BACS details.

Meditate with us online using Zoom!   Zoom is very user friendly, so give it a go. We've had lots of people using it already and we think this will be a great way to participate in the community.

You can protect your community with social distancing, and still feel a part of it, and look after your wellbeing by keeping up with your practice.
