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. It is our intention to open as a small and intimate retreat centre for spiritual human development based on Buddhist values and principals. We would like to be open from April 2018 offering weekend and weekly courses, a quite and peaceful place to rest and recover.

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 year and the house is now fully habitable with a new kitchen, bathrooms and renovated bedrooms. The next stage of works will start in September as we continue to develop the Yoga & Meditation studio and further accommodation. We will need volunteers from the end of March 2018 onwards as we landscape and prepare the centre for its first set of visitors.
