About the workproject

We need 2 volunteers

We are developing a collection of farmhouse buildings into a working studio for meditation and Yoga, guest accommodation, organic garden, sun terraces for relaxation & swimming pool. We opened in July 2018 and the Yoga Studio and accommodation is now finished. We would love some help in the garden creating raised boxes for growing organic vegetables. We would also like to create a special Meditation space in the garden and have some help to create some fencing, screening and planting. I can offer you a daily Yoga and Meditation class as well as some very comfortable accommodation and very good food!

Hi I bought a farmhouse in ruins at the start of the year and we have already made terrific progress. I started to study Buddhism 8 years ago and did my training in Yoga, Meditation and Mindfulness. The possibility of creating a small retreat centre has been a dream since I started my own practise and sharing the practise and knowledge with others would be a privilege. A huge amount of work has already taken place over the last 2 year and the house is now fully habitable with a new kitchen, bathrooms and renovated bedrooms. The second stage of works was completed in July 2018 which included a purpose built Yoga studio, accommodation and a swimming pool. We will need volunteers from the 4th March 2019 onwards as we landscape and spend time in the garden, preparing the centre for its first set of visitors. We have a daily Yoga and Meditation class for local clients and if you are interested and would like to join us in our Zen practice you are very welcome. Namaste
