We need 1 volunteer
Cherry tree Lodge is a non-denominational retreat centre and guest house founded in 2011, for all faiths and none. We welcome a diverse range of facilitators who offer well-being approaches and technologies and their participants Many of our guests come from Central Scotland and some from further afield.
We are a safe, nourishing space set in a stunning landscape that nourishes the soul, holding transformational processes allowing an emergence of the true, connected self, bringing about a deeper inner peace. Most if not all of us want to experience well-being & inner peace. At times we experience challenging emotions and unhelpful patterns of behaving in ourselves. Given the right environment & support we are able to turn inward, face ourselves and in so doing find meaning, joy & connection.
Our bodies, relationships, communities & society need to be nourished just as our minds & hearts. Where to begin? Here it starts with self. Having made peace inside, we are able to meet the world around us with compassion. When there is peace within there is peace without.
On a residential exchange you become more deeply involved with the offering of the space – a being of service and our expectations of you are mutually so.
We value authenticity, integrity, honesty and self-awareness.
We have put together an outline of our offer and our expectations as a result of our residential exchange hosting experience so far. We find that it helps to clarify how we do work exchanges and what is expected of someone who comes to support us. Expectations have a greater chance of being met for both parties, if there is good communication prior to any arrangements, leading to a more all-round, fulfilling experience.
Here is the link to our offer and expectations:
Pictured is a typical room ion the retreat centre that you will be living in. You may need to move rooms depending on availability until we build a dedicated residential exchange space - you might even be helping to build it!
For long term stays - 4 months plus, for the right person, we offer a stipend too.
