  • Description


    We are an international Buddhist center, with guests from around the world, who are interested in Tibetian Buddhism and spiritual practice. Since 2004 we are renovating an old farmhouse in Upper Austria, situated in the picturous region of the Salzkammergut, admist mountains, lakes and woods.
    We are a healing place, run by volunteers, with and without religous backround.
    Its a place for everyone to recharge and be(come) themselfs. For people seeking peace and quiet as well as for those prefering activity and meditation in action- this is the perfect spot for everyone!

    Right now we are looking for people with cleaning skills from 5th of November till mid of December, to be responsible for the housekeeping for our seminar guests. Thank you for applying!

    In the month of October, November and December we will especially need help in construction, so carpenters, electricians, strong and skilled people are most welcome.

    We need help with the many things that come with a big house; from room tidying, laundry to handcraft and gardening.

    Since a few years we have build a beautiful garden and have started to grow some vegetables.

    There is also enough to do around the house and if you have handicraft skills, they are also very welcome

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Here you can learn very much, on many different levels:
    Personal growth: Being in an enviorment of spiritual practice can teach you a lot on how to deal with your emotions, thoughts and challenges that come from living and working together with others.
    Buddhist practice: If you are interested you can join our daily group meditation and the weekendly teachings and seminars on buddhists philosophy by authentic Tibetian Lamas.
    Yet, if you are not interested thats also perfectly fine.
    Skills: We are a team of people with many skills and talents that you can learn from (carpenting, gardening, farming, construction works..)
    Language Skills: As we all come from diffent countries, we speek mostly English and German to each other. Many people have told us that therefore it is a good place to practice both languages.
