The Future Is Unfolding
Since 2016, The Matagiri Board has continued its work to consolidate our land, preserve the existing infrastructure and to honor and carry forward the work of Matagiri’s founders Sam Spanier (1925-2008) and Eric Hughes (1931-2016).
As we approach Matagiri’s 50th anniversary, in August 2018, we have undertaken a major project to provide new infrastructure at Matagiri in order to expand our capacity to host educational and cultural events, as well as to receive visitors, especially from the Ashram and Auroville. The new facility will allow us to offer talks, workshops, hatha yoga, music and dance.Work has begun on this super-insulated straw bale house, so that the energy input of heating or cooling is minimized. We have tried to conform to the most ecologically sound principles in all aspects of this project. Please follow our progress in this photo album.
We would like to express our heartfelt thanks to those of you who have given in the past to Matagiri, and who have recently donated to this new project. We have further to go to meet our fundraising goals. Your donations or friendly loans are critical to its completion before our 50th anniversary.
We always welcome your call or visit to Matagiri.
With warmest wishes and gratitude,
Julian Lines on behalf of the Board of Trustees
