BE ONE OM DOME YOGA PROJECT
This fundraiser will finance the building of a large Geodisic Dome for use as a Yoga Hall at Suryalila, our Beautiful Yoga Retreat Centre in Southern Spain. This will enable us to spread the message of Yoga to more people, increasing the number of conscious and compassionate yogis in the world.
The Dome will expand our capacity and also allow us to start our outreach program to bring underprivileged young adults out to Suryalila (at no cost to them) to experience a completely different way of life, if all goes well we will be starting this with Kids Company from Bristol in December.Suryalila is a small business but in the spirit of yoga our prices cover our costs and we don't turn a big profit, so in order to invest in a project like this we need your help to make it happen!
Vidya Jacqueline Heisel, one of the founders of Suryalila, has been
studying practicing and teaching yoga for forty years. Fourteen years ago, she
began leading Intensive Yoga Teacher Trainings around the world at various Yoga
Retreat Centres. She had difficulty finding the perfect environment for her
retreats in Europe. She became passionate about the idea of creating the perfect
retreat centre herself. After some searching she fell in love with Andalusia in
Southern Spain. Together with some friends, she found a beautiful property to
lease, with an option to buy, and Suryalila Retreat Centre was born.
After three years of hard work we are busy building a successful business and sharing the experience of peace and contentment with everyone who visits. We believe that what we offer here is a truly transformational experience for people and we want to offer that to as many people as possible. With YOUR help in building a new yoga hall we can actualize this dream!
Idea for Project
We fell in love with the idea of building a large Geodisic Dome, based on the ingenious design of Buckminster Fuller. This is both an economical and elegant solution. It will be a very beautiful and sacred Yoga Temple.
We contacted a branch of Pacific Domes in Portugal and are collaborating with them to design the structure. We also are working with a local company to design a foundation and floor for the Dome that has an under-floor heating and cooling system. We plan on building a few walls inside the Dome, with beautiful murals, for practicing handstands. We would also like to build some compost toilets outside to add to the environmental sustainability of the project.
Our dream is to continue to create an experience of heaven on earth; a stunningly beautiful oasis, in harmony with nature. We provide gourmet vegetarian organic local food, and offer a space of great beauty and peace to all who come here. This is already happening to a large extent. We want this to be an exemplary business, where everyone who works here is nurtured and encouraged to blossom. Our vision is expansive, and in order to continue to manifest this, we need your help. The Dome is an integral piece in the success of this dream and with your financial support we can make it happen!
Paying It Forward
With the creation of this dome we have also initiated a project to offer this experience to those less fortunate than us. In order to do so we have partnered with an organization in the UK to organize trips here for inner city and underprivileged young adults. We are offering these trips at no expense to the participants. We would like to share a wholesome holistic lifestyle with them, teaching them how to cook, do yoga, meditate, eat well and to enjoy nature and have a moment of peace. We will be starting this program this winter and hope to develop it further in time. This project ensures the lasting and far reaching impact of your contribution. We are starting this project in gratitude for this crowd-funding event and in gratitude for our amazing life at Suryalila.
In order to make this project possible we've set our goal as 75,000€ which would allow us to get started, however we are still looking for our stretch goal of 150,000€ to complete the whole project!
We have some fantastic perks on offer including Vidya's new DVD box set, you can watch a snippet from a previous training here:
Aside from the perks we are fundraising in various creative ways:
asking Yoga Teachers to teach a donation-based class in support of our project.
We have initiated a 50-day sponsored Yoga challenge,
where participants get sponsored to practice at least an hour of Yoga per day. There
will be perks for whatever money the Yogi raises as well as a grand prize for
the Yogi who raises the most money of a week long stay at Suryalila, with a
round trip flight from anywhere in the world.
- One amazing yogi has even donated her birthday to making the Om Dome happen!
We hope you will participate by donating and helping us to spread the word.
