Help us Build our Meditation Hall

We started this GoFundMe Charity so we could raise the $60k that is still needed to complete the construction of the Hall

Please share this on your social networks, and donate generously so this vision may become a reality for the community, and for you.

Some will know the Hudson Valley Park as a refuge from daily life, inducing tranquility and providing a deep connection to nature. Others will learn about human consciousness, nonviolence and nondiscrimination. Many will experience the sacred within us and around us. In all cases, the Park is a place of inspiration and growth, of building communities and looking towards a human future and we cannot wait to invite you to experience the new Meditation Hall!

International Fundraising Campaign in Support of the Hudson Valley Park of Study and Reflection

Become a protagonist and help us build the first Meditation Pavilion in the US, near New York City.

After 3 years of process, on January 2019 the Town of Esopus approved the “change of use” of the Hudson Valley Park of Study and Reflection from residential to educational non-profit. This allows us to complete the Park, including the Meditation Pavilion.

Since we bought the property in 2010, we have been transforming it into the Park we envision. The existing house became the Center of Work. The hills and wooded areas serve as places of contemplation. A workshop provides “hands-on” experiential activities. Sacred architectural elements common to all Parks of Study & Reflection have been built including the stele and the fountain.

In 2010 we completed all the necessary renovations that make the Center of Work completely operational.  All of the drainage and septic work has also been done (See Renovations 2019).

Now we are just a few steps away from completing our Park with the construction of the Meditation Pavilion and the monolith connecting the earth to the sky.

We are happy that Hudson Valley Park will soon fulfill its destiny as a geo-historical park whose beacon can shine far and wide.

Construction Phases:

  • Phase I:  Septic system (video), drainage system, parking area (May – July 2019). COMPLETED
  • Phase II: Bringing existing building to code; monolith (July – October 2019). COMPLETED
  • Phase III: Construction of Meditation Pavilion (summer 2020)

Friends old and new will make this possible through your contributions and efforts.


Donations can be sent in cash or transferred to a dedicated account. In both cases please write to Emiko Nagano to let her know about your donation.

Donate with PayPal. Thanks for your support!


The complete list of contributors will be engraved on the stele (quota of $500).

Today, we invite you to become part of the ever-unfolding story of the Hudson Valley Park
