Membership for the Tara Rokpa Centre costs R150 per month (R360 for multiple centre membership.) This contribution is extremely important in supporting the work of the Tara Rokpa Centre.

Once our membership base reaches 108 we will be able to cover 25% of our monthly running costs. The income we receive from donations and retreat fees can then be used to upgrade TRC’s current buildings and develop more accommodation and retreat facilities.
