Christ College of Trans-Himalayan Wisdom

Dear friends of Christ College of Trans-Himalayan Wisdom and Southern Lights Centre and questers on the path to spiritual fulfilment. On 10 October 2015 our "Future Directions" workshop was held and we are now going through a major process of restructuring the courses and services we offer.

The preparatory school that is known as Christ College of Trans-Himalayan Wisdom will continue as a meditation school in the tradition in which the college was founded and offer opportunities for rhythmic spiritual living through the three daily meditations, full moon meditations and retreats and esoteric teaching and mentoring for those committed to a spiritual path.

The teaching mission of Christ College of Trans-Himalayan Wisdom will continue as an intregral part of the Southern Lights Centre under the guidance of the new Southern Lights Charitable Trust. Southern Lights Centre will be offering an 8 month residential course entitled "Spiritual Realities" commencing in February 2016. Please go to www.southernlights.org.nz for more information on the course and facilities available at Southern Lights Centre and read our newsletter for an update on recent activities and events.


Registrations of the transfer of the land, and the refinance, have been completed.  Southern Lights Charitable Trust is in ownership of all assets and liabilities previously held by the three organisations associated with Christ College of Trans-Himalayan Wisdom.

We (Peter Richardson, Orest and Julia Tarnawsky) would like to thank all persons associated with the prior Boards for their patience and co-operation in promoting this transfer. We appreciate their contribution to establishing the land and the residential buildings, their effort in maintaining the property and ensuring it’s functioning, also their good will and support.

We seek to develop the vision created by Lawson Bracewell and Leonie Fanthorpe and would appreciate the continuance of your support and trust. We will continue to use the title Christ College of Trans-Himalayan Wisdom (and the logo) in association with the Meditation School and its functioning. Yet the overall administration rests with the new Trust.

We take this opportunity to acknowledge the help of all past donors; their contribution has been considerable and we appreciate this support.

We look forward to continue working with all supporters. Financial, meditative and advisory help will continue to be sought as Lawson’s vision unfolds.
