The centre is located in the forested mountains of the Pyrénées Orientales, surrounded by the most beautiful nature and calm surroundings. This center has been developed to hold meditation retreats and seminars, and it's mostly run by volunteers . This is the perfect place for someone who would like to work and learn in a quiet, beautiful and serene environment. If you are interested in meditation, Tibetan Buddhism, spiritual growth and practice, this is the perfect place to be and also for sharing the experience with people from all over the world.
The nature and atmosphere that surrounds this beautiful center is difficult to describe... Once you are here you realize how precious silence and vast spaces can be. The beauty of every season is displayed by the trees and landscape, and we witness it with the most amazing views.
We have twice daily chanting and meditation practice, weekly teaching sessions and other activities. We hold seminars on Buddhist topics and meditation retreats. If teachings are given by the time you are here, you are welcome to join free of charge.
This is the perfect place for someone who enjoys and feels inspired by outdoor activities such as biking, running, hiking and just being in nature, and who is happy spending time alone in a very isolated and quiet environment.
Because this place is mainly run by volunteers, we are in regular need for people to assist in our operations. Work hours will vary depending on the projects we are developing and running at the time of your stay, and the people we already have here.
It is very important for us that you understand that this is a place of peace, meant for personal growth and spiritual practice. This means that we take our work as part of our daily practice, seeing it as an opportunity to be part of an extremely precious, growing project, and that we share with generous, kind people. The people staying here help with an amazing spirit, and there is not much entertainment around, so the running projects and the daily meditation practice are the main activities in the house.
This is why we look for highly motivated, self-sufficient and enthusiastic people who like to take on challenges and team work.
It is important to know that we are a drug free center (alcohol included).
Because of the current demands of the place, this is not the right place for people who are undergoing personal instability. We need people who are level headed and self sufficient, who can take challenges and be flexible.
