The Wisdom of Compassion: TW Nature Reserve Capitol Campaign

The Wisdom of Compassion:
TW Nature Reserve Capitol Campaign

TSW is in crisis and needs to get the basics running for self-sustenance, mainly Solar BATTERIES and HOT WATER. There are other things it's important for people to know - we need everyones help to repair and renovate the VERY BASICS for this next season.

The Tsegylagar West, Los Naranjos retreat center in Baja Ca Sur needs your support to complete repairs and renovate its infrastructure from last year's damage from Hurricane Odile. We have made progress with a new roof structure for the meeting hall, but still need support to replace solar batteries, hot water heaters in casitas, etc. This funding is very important to keep the beautiful and peaceful center maintained for renting to groups, as that is an important source of income to maintain it well.
Please give to the Capitol Campaign and we will give back in a program to acknowledgement of your gift! Please join us in collaboration by donating.
Who We Are
The Tsegyalgar West 'Los Naranjos" Buddhist retreat center is located in Baja California Sur. It is a Nature Reserve of 3,000 acres of diverse landscape, both desert and lush tropics. It has an intricate mysterious terrain and fresh springs, within the majestic Sierra Laguna mountain range.  It is located north of San Jose del Cabo in Baja Ca Sur, Mexico. We have been offering various programs to the
community for over ten years.

There are 16 casitas to enjoy for stays, which offer an extraordinary natural environment to immerse in, and to relax and discover our relationship with natural well being. Pristine wilderness areas are quickly becoming more rare and precious in our modern age. It is our mission to preserve this land for the benefit of all. Please come to visit!

Eco-stays can include meditation and contemplation practice, yoga and massage, hiking and natural spring arroyos, permaculture and gardens, ongoing seminars and programs available, as well as group retreats and eco-tourist interests.
