‘Grace happens when we act with others on behalf of our world’
— Joanna Macy

Arcoora is a nonprofit collaborative community organisation for training, support and action in community resilience and ecological regeneration.

We listen to nature and to the ancestors of this place; past, present and emerging, stewarding the former Vajradhara Gonpa and surrounding wilderness according to ecological principles and values.

Arcoora applies best practices in holistic land management and small scale agriculture, transforming the former Vajradhara Gonpa and surrounding land and forest as a training ground for Earth Arts and Village-mindedness. Historically the site has long been identified as a wisdom school and sanctuary for cultural initiations.

The spirit work that has taken place here resounds.
