SAMARPAN MEDITATION CENTRE – The event is being staged to help raise funds towards our Unique meditation hall. A special meditation hall - the Gurushaktidham is being constructed at the Samarpan Ashram in Melton Mowbray. The design of the meditation hall and plan for the development of the estate is based on a simple, sensitively built environment, designed to support the meditative state. At the same time, our aim is to protect and enhance the natural environment, respecting the local biology and biodiversity and minimising our environmental impact as much as possible. The meditation centre will also contain a spiritual artefact known as a 'Murti' (energised statue). This is an object of spiritual significance to Samarpan Meditation. All together the resultant space within the building will be one of calm and peace. Up to 100 people will be able to meditate at any given time. Entirely free of cost for anyone who would like to explore Samarpan Meditation and escape the hustle and bustle of day-to-day life. With sustainability and renewable energy in mind, the building will make use of Air Source Heat Pumps, use underfloor heating, be adequately ventilated and also ultimately be solar-powered. If you cannot attend the event, please donate to the cause through our JustGiving Page: https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/RaiseTheRoofOfTheMeditationHall
