In 1992, the Russian-born Sufi teacher, Irina Tweedie, instructed her students, Tony Kruger and Mona Wurtz, to build a meditation retreat in Australia - a place that would serve those searching for peace in their hearts and minds for many days to come.
Together Tony and Mona created a priceless sanctuary, a place of inspiration and transformation. They called it Sangsurya.
A Sanskrit inspired word, meaning “a place where the sun reaches everybody”, Sangsurya is a retreat like no other. For those of you who have attended retreats or trainings here, you know the artistry and care that informs every building, garden, walkway and staircase in this wonderful haven.
Every effort has been made to keep costs to participants reasonable, so that a wide cross-section of people are able to receive the nourishment and support a stay at Sangsurya offers.
Over the last 25 years, over 20,000 people have been touched by Sangsurya, as world class facilitators hold this very special space with grace, humility and authenticity.
Mona and Tony toiled to the end of their days, with creative passion and dedication to finish Sangsurya in service to others. Just before he passed away in 2017, Tony established an 80 year Trust with 4 trustees to watch over Sangsurya.
Not being able to hold retreats and workshops in our beautiful sanctuary when COVID-19 first hit, followed by cancellations or participant numbers dropping severely on retreats over several months has seen our financial resources dwindle while our financial obligations have not.
Your support is now needed to help Sangsurya through this challenging time.
The solution is to open Sangsurya’s doors to the world, and share the wisdom she holds within at a time when it’s needed the most. Funds are needed for essential maintenance and social media marketing to make our upcoming on retreat and online fundraising initiatives a reality and a success.
Please make a donation to preserve and protect Sangsurya for the benefit of all and for generations to come.
