Love in action

We are working in the spirit of ‘karma yoga’, which we could translate as ‘Love in action’. If you want to grow, learn and deepen the qualities of service and love, you are welcome to apply for joining as a volunteer. Read more about ‘karma yoga’ here.

Volunteer with us

We offer 2 ways of practicing karma yoga with us: as a resident (minimum 2 months) or as a non-resident in our center. From September 2023 on we will mostly work with non-residential karma yogis and will have the resident-option only sporadically.

What does non-resident karma yoga involve?

As a non-resident volunteer (karma yogi) you join our team for specific retreats, always from the beginning until the end of a retreat. This is usually for about 4 days. During these days you can stay over in our center and afterwards you return home. Volunteers work an average of 5 hours a day.

Depending on both your interests and talents and our necessities, you can work in specific fields, though we ask for a flexible attitude, serving where needed. These jobs include:
