Funds raised with matched funding
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.

But it all starts with acquiring the land and the initial buildings!
