The Mandala Center is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization and graciously accepts public donations to fulfill our mission. If you would like to make a donation to The Mandala Center, your contribution is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
The Mandala Center offers a supportive retreat through hospitality and programming in the remote and beautiful land of NE New Mexico. Our mission is to provide a peaceful place to refresh the mind, renew the spirit, and heal the body. Our vision is to help people grow toward their own healing and wholeness so they are inspired from a place of well-being to go back into their own communities and continue to make a difference in the lives of others.
The Mandala Center, in essence, is an entity made up of people and activities: staff, teachers, volunteers, guests, donors, the workshops, events, and relationships that are shared here. We are the heart that drives our mission and the land and buildings offer the “structure” where all the transformative work can happen. You are part of this entity and make it all possible by donating, spreading the word, participating in our programs, and by sending prayers to all who seek retreat and education to better the world.
We strive to keep costs reasonable for the public – to allow a wider range of individuals to seek retreat - while we subsidize substantial percentages of overhead costs. Often our prices only cover a fraction of what it actually takes to run and manage the Center so it can remain in operation. As you know, costs for supplies, utilities, food, and repairs keep rising. Keeping costs down becomes a challenge as we try to maintain and grow into our potential. We know that money does not grow on trees but together we can help to plant the seeds of new growth through generosity and through a willingness to support the things in life that we value.
Your donation helps to support our scholarship program, bring in good workshop leaders, maintain the well-being of the land and center itself, and offer opportunity for new growth and development for those who journey here. Your donation is also a vote of support that affirms you value The Mandala Center and the concept of personal retreat and you want to ensure such a place continues to exist in the world. Most of all, it demonstrates that you value the people who come here seeking time for contemplation, study, creative pursuits, and personal development in hopes of creating a world that is more loving, more compassionate, more balanced, and more whole for all of us.
