Wonderwell Mountain Refuge is Natural Dharma Fellowship’s (NDF’s) retreat center and also hosts retreats of other groups committed to NDF’s mission and values.
Wonderwell Mountain Refuge came into being and flourishes only through generosity and openhearted giving by individuals like you. Retreat tuitions cannot fully cover Wonderwell’s ongoing operating budget. Funds are required for operating costs, completion of renovations, repairs, landscaping and to sustain the property, so that it may continue to host group and solo retreats years into the future.
Dāna is a Sanskrit word that means generosity. On the Mahayana Buddhist path, it is considered the first ‘perfection’ of the bodhisattva training, and the foundation of all qualities of a spiritual life. Considering the benefits we have received from the generous teaching and mentorship of our teachers, we have a wonderful opportunity to express our gratitude and support the continuation of the teachings.
Your offering of dāna pays forward the enjoyment you have received in this peaceful refuge. We thank the sangha for engaging in the joyful practice of giving. May all beings benefit!
