About our Situation and Need for Fundraising
Earthquake Repair Update
At last we are glad to inform you that we have a mediation date in sight for early 2020. We are deeply thankful for your continued help and support as we prepare for this and for the subsequent repairs and safeguards which are so long awaited. Due to the long process, we feel we can no longer wait to proceed with other urgent work to update the Centre, and so we need your help with these projects more than ever before.
Why is the Centre raising funds?
As many of you may have experienced, the loving work of the SevaLight Retreat Centre in Christchurch has blossomed and expanded in the past year. Our healing and counselling clinic is now busier than ever before. With many more people realising the profound benefits of practical and spiritual teachings, guidance and Pure Spiritual Healing, our existing treatment room is regularly overstretched. We have regularly needed to see patients and clients in other rooms around the Centre, limiting their use for Retreatants and students. This is a wonderful ‘problem’ to have! But it is now time to rectify this, as well as providing further accommodation for those in need of quiet, peace and space.
We need your help that we may more readily and effectively meet these growing needs. Our plan is to build a purpose built Healing and Counselling Clinic, with three treatment rooms and a reception, nestled into the garden along the rear boundary of the Centre. This will enable us to convert our existing healing and waiting room more permanently into accommodation (this has been ‘tried and tested’ on a temporary basis and proven extremely popular). The new clinic will be nearer to the facilities of the Centre, more comfortable for our visitors and allow more opportunity to imbibe in the peace and beauty of the Centre gardens around appointments.
Why should I support the Centre?
The SevaLight Retreat Centre is for everyone, whether your life has already been transformed by the teachings or this call for help is your first introduction to the Centre. It is a place for people of all beliefs and bacgrounds; without dogma and with the focus on unconditional love for all. The Centre is a registered charity and is run completely by dedicated volunteers. While the Centre is so much more than the building and location, we need a strong and secure place to continue to be a haven of light and peace for all who come.
So many people over the years have shared with us how their lives have been so profoundly changed by the help they have received from the Centre. Indeed, we have heard many times that the Centre saves lives. Please help us continue to do this important work so that the loving teachings of the Centre may continue to help others now and in the future. As well as the vital Earthquake repairs, the Centre is in urgent need of updating and so any contribution however large or small is vitally important – please let us know if you are able to help in any way, or commit to a long-term contribution.
We need and deeply value your support for the building of our larger purpose built healing and counselling clinic ~ to help us to provide for all those in need of the Centre’s work and therapies.
We need help from everyone ~ please share our situation with anyone who may be able to help.
Please contact us on 03 359 8507, so we can talk through our situation with you and any contribution you can make for now and for the future.
The Centre is a registered charity (# CC21694), and is unique in that it is managed and operated solely by dedicated volunteers. 100% of your donation will go to the SevaLight Retreat Centre in Bishopdale, Christchurch, NZ.
