The Sharda Centre – for Retreats, Workshops, Gatherings & Conferences
Nestled in a secluded section of rural Tuakau, with native bush walks, stream, waterfalls and woodland, The Sharda Centre is a place of peace where one may attune to Nature and refresh the Spirit, away from the stress and demands of today’s busy life.
Dedicated to the educational, cultural and spiritual needs of people today, it upholds the ideal of harmony in all aspects of life, with all people, and within the realms and rhythms of Nature.
In the pressures and stress of the modern world, there is an increasing need for places of quiet beauty where people may go to be refreshed and renewed. Sharda offers such a venue.
The Sharda Trust is a registered charitable, non profit organization, founded in 1989.
The ideals of Sharda, envisioned by Halima MacEwan, were inspired by the teachings of Hazrat Inayat Khan who stresses the unity at the centre of all life, and the understanding of that unity common to all religions. Sharda respects and honours all sacred traditions.
