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.
When Covid-19 hit we were unable to hold retreats or workshops at all for months. Even now, our numbers attending are restricted to comply with NSW health regulations. Sadly, our financial resources have dwindled this year while our financial obligations have not.
Your support is now urgently needed to help Sangsurya through this challenging time.
Funds are needed for essential property maintenance and social media marketing.
Your donation will ensure the reality and success of our new face to face and online Sangsurya Signature Retreats.
Now is a perfect opportunity for Sangsurya to open her doors to the world and share the wisdom she holds within at a time when it is needed most.
Please make a donation to preserve and protect Sangsurya for the benefit of all and for generations to come.
