Membership for the Tara Rokpa Centre costs R130 per month and this contribution would be extremely important in supporting the work of the Tara Rokpa Centre.

During 2012, we are aiming to increase our membership base to 108 members. With this number of members, we will be able to cover almost 40% of our monthly running costs.
The income we receive from donations and retreat fees can then be used to upgrade TRC’s current buildings and develop more accommodation and retreat facilities.

With your help we will be able to continue work on our Four Wings: expanding our therapy programme and retreats, bringing international dharma teachers to Africa, supporting the local community, and becoming a pioneer in the field of eco-building and permaculture.

In return for your generosity, we will be able to offer you 15% discount on retreat fees, as well as 3 nights free stay during quiet times in our accommodation, for you and your partner or friend (one twin room).
You will also receive advanced notice of up-coming retreats through our bi-monthly newsletter.
