A community of sincere practice
The Land of Joy will provide facilities for individuals and groups to undertake retreats from a weekend to many years in duration.
Money raised so far
Founding fundraising target: £1 million
£1 million will make it possible for Land of Joy to purchase a property set in extensive grounds in a beautiful part of the UK.
Buying a property will enable Land of Joy to begin a varied programme of regular retreats. Beyond the £1m, specific fundraising campaigns, such as for long term retreat huts and hospice care, will be initiated to further enhance the facilities.
But it all starts with acquiring the land and the initial buildings!
