WELCOME TO Dharma Gaia

The greatest gift you can offer to anyone is your True Presence.
— Thich Nhat Hanh

Dharma Gaia
centre of mindful living

We are a small community of people who live simply and in harmony, sharing and growing through the practice of Living Mindfully. Our focus is on cultivating the ability to respond to each moment of life  with calm clear attention.. 

Many people come to Dharma Gaia  learn about meditation and mindfulness, while others simply come for personal retreat, self-care and a time to contemplate and be in nature. We are very happy to receive people from all walks of life, and cultural and ethnic traditions to simply be here to rest, rejuvenate and experience the deep peace and joy of the Mindfulness Practice. 

We are grounded in the teachings and tradition of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh, who is an inspiration and a profound example of the peace and beauty that is enabled when we live fully in the present moment. We do not need to become Buddhist to touch the reality of life ... we need only to stop our running and allow ourselves to be here ... now.

The centre is nestled in the beautiful bush-covered hills of the Coromandel Peninsula in New Zealand.
