Support Samadhi

Why help?

Samadhi is a small organisation run not for profit. We are operated entirely by volunteering our time, and no payment is given to teachers or administrators for their service. In this way, our motivation remains virtuous and those who are involved in Samadhi give their time or money solely through their compassion and wish to benefit others.

Through your generosity, whether you are offering your time or a gift, we can continue making important contributions to our community through The Samadhi Podcast, this website & our retreats and courses. You will also be helping us to raise funds for the Samadhi Retreat Centre Project.

"The growth I’ve had this year is thanks to finding Samadhi which has inspired me to take action. I am leaving the year far happier than when I entered it with a much quieter mind. Still lots of work to do on becoming a human being not a human doing!"

"A massive thing for me this year while on my healing journey is being a part of a Community (online and in person) meeting and sharing with people as been so good for my mental health.. I have grown as a person and I have also learned new ways to approach difficult situations.. your sessions have made a big impact on my life in so many ways and for that I would like to say a big Thank You 🙏🏽 😊❤️"

"I booked onto one of your retreats last minute, in Oct. I knew I needed time for myself. Time to reflect on what I really wanted in life, thank goodness I did, as this is when I noticed a lump. I have now been diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer. All is ok, we have a plan to remove it all on Jan 30th and then step by step i will heel. Mediation has helped me all the way and will continue to help me through life. I share my story to encourage you all to do a checkin on your body and mind. David and Manu, I cannot thank you enough for your dedication to share your learnings. Normally I am the hare in life, but understand next year its time to be a 🐢. The community here will also keep me strong and it is so nice to see familiar faces. Have a good Christmas everyone and thank you."

"I have been through so much challenge and change this year with my health as I have incurable cancer and started the year mentally and physically fatigued after 4 years of treatment. I believe the retreat and in particular the daily meditations have helped me greatly in the last 3 months. I am able to take things day to day and have immense gratitude for my wonderful son and my life. I even love my dogs even more if that was possible. I am less self cherishing and I am much more patient and understanding if there is any conflict with my partner. I understand now that he is suffering greatly. The one thing that resonated with me was I think on retreat you talked about separating the person with the behaviour and you likened it to the unconditional love a mother has for her child. Wow that was a moment I realised how I needed to be more compassionate to people in my life. "

1. Supporting by Giving Your Time

If you are unable to help us financially, or prefer to have a hands-on approach to supporting Samadhi, there are a number of ways you could help us and we would be very excited to hear from you. At present, we especially need help with transcribing of our podcast episodes and online teachings (to help those who are hard of hearing), event & podcast promotion.

What we currently need help with:

Audio Transcribing

Help those who are hard of hearing to receive teachings by transcribing our podcast episodes

Event/Podcast Promotion

Help by promoting our events and podcast episodes so that we may reach as many people as possible!


We will soon need help with our fundraising goals as we move into the next phase of our Retreat Centre Project.

2. Make a Donation

While we strive to benefit as many people as possible regardless of their financial situation, unfortunately, we cannot avoid running costs.

By offering a donation (or becoming a Samadhi Supporter) you make an invaluable contribution to the running of Samadhi’s activities and to the goal of the future Samadhi Eco Retreat Centre. Through your kindness, we are able to cover our ongoing fees and continue to offer all of our online events and resources freely.

Optional Donation - This donation will support fundraising for the Samadhi Eco Retreat Centre.
