8.5 Ha of land was purchased in 1997 for a residential community centred around the daily practise of Transcendental Meditation. The plan incorporates 20 buildings, including a main meditation hall, two accommodation buildings, staff housing, and housing for special internation guests. The plan nutures a large certified organic garden and protects the native bush boundaries.
On-going revision of the Master Plan in 2001, 2003 in conjunction with the Owners. In 2006 a resource consent was applied for and was granted in 2007. Betsy is continually being asked to consider improvements to the Master Plan to protect the meditative purpose from impacts of surrounding urban growth and expand the meditation facilities.
