Lets turn our center in Xochicalco into a proper retreat place.
Update 25 May 2020:
Since Friday the 22nd of May 2020, the property is now in our name! This is great news and we are working very hard upgrade all the facilities so we can have retreats with up to 60 people.
We are working on the dorm rooms, the dorm bathrooms, bathrooms in the main house, the kitchen, the dining room, water supply and management, parking, gardens, fencing, 50 beds, mattresses and all the other things that go with it. Many existing things had to be redone as they were in poor condition.
Now more than ever is your help needed. To be able to finalize the deal we had to take some short term loans and the final payment for the house is due by the middle of December 2020.
Earlier we could have pulled out but now we are committed. If we miss the final payment we would lose the house.
We also still need funds to complete the needed repairs and renovations. We are 80% ready for the upcoming retreat. You can read about it in more detail in the updates.
So we are still inviting you to help us:-) But you know now this project has become a reality not anymore a dream!
And to celebrate this new reality we now have a name: Ananda Madhumayá which means: Full of the sweetness of bliss.
As always a few bigger donations would really help :-) But don't be shy, any donation will help us get closer! What ever you can give from your heart will be greatly appreciated.
GoFundMe is especially for those wanting to use their credit/debit cards to make one-off or recurring contributions. Automatic monthly contributions would be a great long term support.
