If everybody makes a difference, the world will be a different place!
Our Project is located in a rural village in the northeast of Thailand. Well off the beaten track of tourism we offer an opportunity for everybody to join in a fascinating project where we combine meditation, yoga, nutritional guidance, natural building and ecological gardening (especially permaculture) to a system of personal growth and care for nature. We want to show that the path inside and sustainable living can be very lively, joyful and fun. We rock the garden!
Each day you will have yoga, meditation training, Buddhist teachings, tools to work and live peacefully as a community, and once a week we have a whole day of meditation training. We have basic but functional facilities and provide two hearty (vegetarian) meals a day with leftovers for dinner :)
Our project is rooted in the Thai community, so you can experience an authentic insight into Thai culture and really be part of it. Our teacher is the Abbot of one of the most famous Monasteries in Thailand and as such, living mindfully and observing the Buddha's teaching is very much at the heart of this project. We have a deep connection with the village monastery and the Buddhist community and enjoy sharing in ceremonies and festivals together. We even have a monk who comes to the project at the weekends to practice his English with us!
Although we are connected with a Buddhist monastery, we are not aiming to convert people to Buddhism. What we want is to find a way to live harmoniously together regardless of one's beliefs and background. We are looking for people with very open minds, who want to get involved and become part of a positive change!
*️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️Please note: as we work on behalf of the monastery and often spend time around monks, this is a drug and alcohol free place and there is a strict dress code!*️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️
We are 2 years into our journey on our current plot of land, so we are at a stage where we are looking to take the project to the next level. This is an incredibly exciting time in the growing process and a great time to learn! Right now we are focused on earthen buildings, maintaining and expanding our beautiful gardens and implementing systems to improve soil quality and retain waiter. We are more than open to hear your creative ideas.
We have a beautiful large open air shelter for sleeping with a tin roof and bamboo mats to sleep on and we have lots of mosquito nets for everyone. We have developed a semi-outdoor kitchen and beautiful thatched showers and a separate toilet block. The accommodation is basic but also fun!
We are very animal friendly and seem to have taken in 7 dogs and 4 cats from the local area! All our 7 dogs are quite self sufficient but also love some cuddle time. Ash our Project cat is the best cat in the world and loves cuddles more than the dogs!
Our place is located 30 Km away from the third largest city of Thailand. The city is a student town with a great night markets and beautiful restaurants set around the lake. Even as large city, its always a surprise if you see tourists.
As a monastery partner project, this is a very special place to be, so if you're interested drop us a message and we'll happily send you more information on our schedule, our responsibilities, cost and how to register your space.
So come join us and get inspired! All open minds are welcome at our project :)
Thank you so much and we look forward to getting to know you!
May all being be happy!

We have a large open air dorm with mosquito nets (thin mattress, sheet and blanket available, bring whatever else you need for your own comfort if desired), basic toilets and a choice of indoor or gorgeous bamboo outdoor showers :)
We are in the process of growing our site and have many building projects started. While we develop these buildings our dorms and kitchen are still outdoors and rustic but very functional! We have beautiful bamboo showers and lots of single and double mosquito nets for volunteers. The accommodation is very basic but fun and we are in a great stage of development for volunteers to come take part in. Come and pioneer with us!

In developing countries (Where most hosts are involved in charity work or community development) some of our hosts may ask for a small donation to help the host family or charity (often less then 5 dollars per day) Workaway will allow this listing when the donation goes directly to the family or charity and is just to cover the cost of the volunteer‘s stay. (This will be clearly marked on the host listing).
We will strictly not allow listings posted by agents, “middle men” or projects who we feel are looking to profit from a volunteers stay.
