    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Our helpers take so much away from their visit with us. We stay in touch with almost everyone who visits. Staying and mixing within such a lovely kind, open hearted community is our best offering. We also offer free meditation classes. An experience not to be missed!

    We are looking for volunteers to help in our World Peace Cafe, household, gardening, painting & cleaning - there are many activities. There's a mixed age range of guests and residents living here in our harmonious community.

    Our centre is very popular with working visitors, we host year round volunteers from all around the world. Hundreds of volunteers have helped here in the past 25 years. As our guest and helper, you will be able to feel like part of our thriving community. You are welcome to attend our evening meditation classes and some day time classes for free in return for 25 hours per week. Work days are Tuesday to Saturday. We offer comfortable dorm accommodation, laundry tokens, 3 vegetarian meals per day. Plus free wifi and 24/7 hot drinks!

    There are short-term and long-term opportunities available from a minimum of two weeks stay. We do have a few on-site boundaries we set in advance such as no smoking, alcohol, drugs, loud music on-site. We require a kind heart and a reference. :)

    Hope see you soon.

    What else ...

    Hundreds of volunteers, over more than twenty years, have already enjoyed this precious, peaceful and unique experience of being part of a Western modern Buddhist community. The tasks to be performed in volunteering are accessible to all people. In your spare time, if you wish, you can learn or deepen your meditation practice.

    *️️️️️️*️️️️️️*️️️️️️*️️️️️️Plus Brighton is a lovely multi cultural city with so much to offer. Shopping, music, walks along the beach.

    Also the South Downs are just a few miles away. They have been designated as a National Character Area (NCA 125) by Natural England. The downland is a highly popular recreational destination, particularly for walkers, horseriders and mountain bikers. A long distance footpath and bridleway, the South Downs Way, follows the entire length of the chalk ridge from Winchester to Eastbourne, complemented by many interconnecting public footpaths and bridleways.

    Lastly, London is only 1 hour away by train !!!
