Just let us know what kind of task you would like to do!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Coming here will affect you deeply. We have volunteers from all over the world coming just to be a part of this lovely family. Many volunteers stay or come back because of the great energy and spirit of the place.
    You will learn to be a part of a group working together for a join course. You will learn about Danish culture but also a lot about the culture of other countries as we live together as one big family.
    You can also join in on the daily program of yoga, meditation, concerts and so on, when it is interfering with your shift.
    All in all you will learn about a lot of new things and you may even learn more about yourself.

    What else ...

    As it takes time to get used to the working with the tasks of the centre, we prefer that volunteers stay at least one month as it has advantages for both sides. For us it takes a lot of effort to explain how everything works and things flow seamlessly when we know each other better. For the volunteers the advantages are that you become more free and are able to take more responsibility. And since we are a spiritual development centre you will grow and learn more the longer you stay.

    Directions:
    Take the train to Ribe or Vojens
    From there take bus n°135 in the direction of Ribe
    We can pick you up at bus stop or train station if agreed in advance.
