    It's amazing how fast that grass has grown, it was sprayed with some magic stuff and in no time that was there. Helps hold it all together as well. The metal is part of, hopefully, very good drainage.

    The approx. 132 grand that they have pulled in at their membership pause point of 230 may help them somewhat. The approx. other 155 grand when they take it up to 500 should even put a gloss on the turd. Although the mediation centre may not be strapped for cash either and may be able to pull fighting funds from their Oz connection.

    The centre's efforts to overturn a certificate of compliance through the court next month, which is seeing a gun club opening in its quiet neighbourhood, could be a serious stumbling block to the project

    I think the hippies will be a bit screwed. As for quiet neighbourhood? Yeah nah it's still hillbilly central up that way. If they wanted quiet neighbourhood maybe they should have shelled out more and bought dotcom's old pad

    Who is connected to the meditation people via Australia? Is there a parent organisation?

    I think they should stop the expansion of the city. Do something drastic to lower the price of houses and then use he public works act to buy up the whole of central Auckland and build mass housing apartments.

    Nice idea but it's hard enough to find decent tradesmen to finish the one that we're building now.
    Better plan would be to wall off the suburbs and lob high explosives in.

    Google them.

    Interesting organisation. They don't charge fees for their courses. The attendees make donations based on the quality of their experiences.

    Possibly the centre could have some moneyed up benefactors.

    I am sure the fees wont have any upward change based on this.

    One thing that is interesting and possibly behind it is that they have resource consent to turn their 'small' business in to a rather large one with something like 35 buildings on it, many for accomodation. It seems they have plans and that could be the reason behind it. Even some of the local supporting them don't know of their expansion.
