The Centre came in to being in 2003, and with the help of many, many people we’ve established a place (many would say a Home Away from Home) where between 2012 and 2014 we provided:
- 1300+ appointments: clients received help for their wide ranging mental, physical, emotional and spiritual needs.
- 130+ Courses for personal Growth & Development.
- At No Charge: answers to nearly 400 calls for Help; 2,000+ peaceful meditation gatherings; and 150+ uplifting and engaging talks.
- along with needed respite and loving care to countless others who came for anywhere from an hour to days at a time.
These services would be greatly limited if the Centre had no heat or hot water or a leaking roof, and further limited by time if we had to rely on public transportation to run errands and do the weekly shopping.
Your donations will go DIRECTLY to these repairs, so that the Centre has more resources to care for more people in need. Your donation WILL help others.
We’re a small charity (income generated 2012-2014 was $132,633) with a BIG Heart (bursaries/scholarship places given in the same time period $62,000+)… and what we do have ~ we use to help people in need. The Centre’s annual income just meets its expenses, and we’re okay with that. Our aim isn’t to make money, just to Help People live happier, healthier, more harmonious lives. So at times like this, we need to ask for help.
We’d call times like this Progressive (remember all of these items broke within a week!) – because ‘good can come from anything’ is one of the Centre’s basic principles/teachings – and it’s invaluable to live by.
Many would call our situation ‘unfortunate’, however we see it as an opportunity: to ask for help ~ which helps others to give, to tell more people about where they too can find help, and to grow in our Faith.
If you would prefer to make a donation directly to the Centre, please send a check payable to Self Realization Meditation Healing Centre, 7187 Drumheller Road, Bath, MI, 48808.
