Emoyeni – Cultivating Wisdom & Compassion

“Generosity is the most natural outward expression of an
 inner attitude of compassion and loving-kindness.” 

Since its tentative beginnings in 2000, Emoyeni has grown into a beautiful retreat centre offering a wide range of retreats. It has become a sanctuary from the hurly burly of our busy city lives and a home from home for many of us – a place where we are always welcome and where we can recharge and explore the deep existential questions of life.

As you may know  Emoyeni Retreat Centre,  a registered Non-Profit Organisation, is sustained through Dana (free-will offering). Over the past 23 years it has been able to develop and sustain itself through these contributions of time, effort, practice, donations and teaching from a wide community.  Yet, as things do, expenses and running costs have also grown over this time.

With this in mind we as the Trustees of Emoyeni are sending out this 100 x 100 appeal: We are appealing to you to donate R100 (or any amount that suites your pocket better) a month for the next 12 months. This can be done by making a twelve month repeat payment every month through internet banking.

If everyone who is able to donate R100 each month to the centre does so, it would make a huge impact on the entre and allow it ‘breathe freely’.  

Not only will these donations be of great practical benefit in helping to keep the accommodation costs down, it also shows the Centre that they have our support. Something small from all of you can and will really make a big difference for our Retreat Centre.

If you would like to make such a commitment please see the banking details below:


Account Name:  Emoyeni Retreat Centre
Account Number:  033-215-103

Ps. By becoming a regular dana donator you will automatically be placed in our monthly draw to win a free weekend at Emoyeni, so do remember to include your name when you donate.

We thank you for your generosity

Warm wishes in the Dharma from the Emoyeni Trustees
