volunteering opportunitiesThere are two main ways to volunteer at Madhyamaka KMC: on a regular basis if you live locally, or on a Volunteering Visit if you live further afield.

See below for more information about each option.

Volunteering Visit

In exchange for 25 hours work a week (spread over five days), you receive: seven days free accommodation, three vegetarian meals a day, full use of all the centre’s facilities and free attendance at meditation classes during your stay. It is also a unique opportunity to meet and work alongside members of the residential community and to find out more about the Buddhist way of life.  The minimum visit requirement is 2 weeks.

Help is needed in a variety of different areas – such as cafe, maintenance, gardens, household and cleaning, and are a great way to have fun and make new friends!

Accommodation is in either male or female dorm – please bring your own sleeping bag and towel.

Please complete this form to apply.
