500 acres of pristine land in New Zealand-Aotearoa.
An extraordinary gift from two very generous donors in 2020, this land will become the CCR’s center for meditation and study in the Asia-Pacific region.
Thousands of trees, shrubs, and rocks planted for erosion control; culverts excavated and roads built and repaired; extensive grass hydro-seeding.
Cabin specifications defined (15 cabins) and cost analysis complete, including exploration of climate-appropriate options. Draft cabin renderings complete and permitting process underway.
RETREATS & COMMUNITY TOUR
In November and December 2022, CCR Founders Lama Alan Wallace and Dr. Eva Natanya led a series of talks, retreats, and community meetings, deepening relationships with the local community around Jhampa Ling and institutions across New Zealand and Australia. Four videos exploring themes of science, communication, and education showcased here.
Regional Coordinator Scott Abbott, bringing a wealth of experience in international research dissemination, joined full-time. Also, CCRA welcomes 9 new dedicated members who work in 3 teams: the Land Regeneration and Sustainability Team, the Building Team, and the Fundraising and Giving Team.
