NCMC Fall Fundraiser

A MESSAGE FROM KAZI  |  Spiritual Director  |  Newark Center for Meditative Culture

Greetings,

I’m writing to ask you to consider making a donation to Newark Center for Meditative Culture (NCMC). We want to raise $3,000 in 6 weeks. Can you help us?

We want to raise this money to support operating expenses while bringing back in-person community gatherings and building up our new Booking Space at NCMC program and Spirit Culture Shop. This will help us keep our focus on providing creative programming and a new hybrid in-person/online way of working.

That is important because without revived and new sources of income we will not be able to keep our new home at 2 Park Place stabilized while we develop. And to develop we need an assured operating budget.

Yes, we have proudly received grants for programs in 2021 including a substantial grant to hold our first 3-day BIPOC mindfulness retreat in nature in 2022 for 40 participants. But, grants for operating expenses are hard to come by and covid has kept attendance at our programs low.

Because of donor support last year we were able to prepare and equip the Center. It’s now ready to set a welcoming tone in the heart of Downtown Newark — providing healing, educational, spiritual, meditation, stress resilience, and wellness programs — in-person, online, and hybrid.

But, we need your help again now — whether it’s $5 or $500! Can you give any amount that makes you feel good in supporting NCMC’s work?
 

 

Read below to see the Winter Cleanse Gifts* you can receive for your generosity!

NOTE: You can opt in or opt out of receiving gifts.

With a donation of $5-$24 you can receive the gift of a One-Day Cleansing Meal Plan

It’s my pick of a full day of healing vegan recipes from my Winter Cleanse Recipes Guide — breakfast, lunch, and dinner!
 
With a donation of $25-$49 you can receive the gift of my Winter Cleanse Recipes e-Booklet
This 49-page recipe guide is packed with 67 delicious, healthy, and
simple recipes for vegan/vegetarian juices, smoothies, soups, meals, and
desserts!
 
With a donation of $50 or more you can receive the Full 6-Part Winter Cleanse Program
This 132-page e-Book program is a tool carefully planned by me to help
you prepare your body to make the shift from balancing the effects of
the cool/dry autumn, to fortifying itself to endure the pernicious
influences of the cold/moist winter. You will be providing your body
with the raw materials needed to support immunity and resilience!
Whether you use the program for a strict 11-day detox or simply for the
healing recipes and wellness tips, I think you’ll appreciate it.
 
100% of your tax-deductible donations will go to NCMC for operating expenses (except where minor service fees apply). The use of the Winter Cleanse Program was offered completely free by the author Kazi, Our Shaman Song, for the sole use of NCMC to provide exclusively to donors of the Fall 2021 Fundraiser.
Opt In or Opt Out of Receiving Gift. Make a note on your donation whether or not you would like to receive a gift corresponding to your donation.
This winter NCMC is making a big change by inviting like-minded individuals and groups to book our space for their programs for reasonable fees. These guest-hosted programs will draw even more inspirational community and help put mindful activity front and center in Brick City.
 

As a local teacher following our work expressed:

“I applaud the work that you’re [NCMC’s] doing. … I know the value and the life-changing effects of a spiritual life that includes meditation and mindfulness. It’s imperative that ALL communities have an opportunity to learn these types of practices/tools.”

We want you to feel a part of the change — small or large — whether through your donations, well-wishes, or engagement in our programs! We thank you for all your support.

Humbly yours,

Ib’nallah S. Kazi
SPIRITUAL DIRECTOR
Newark Center for Meditative Culture

ps. Our families, especially our youths, can deeply benefit from mindfulness, stress reduction practices, and frequent intentional experiences in nature. Will you donate now to help us ensure that we can provide life-changing programs to Newark, the Greater Newark Area, and beyond?
