  • Description

    Description

    I am a Pastoral Shaman and Yoga Teacher. Guests come to find peace and quiet or to review their lives in a place of healing, getting away from a world that can be as you know quite turbulent. The center is a not for profit operation and so i can not offer paid work. Part of the volunteers function is to be a presence here when I have clients on retreat. 80% of my guests are ladies coming for a retreat alone, so its nice for them to have another lady or gent to chat and interact with while here. It’s very peaceful here and I have excellent WiFi. I am happy to teach you yoga, meditation or any of the other discipline on offer. Have a look at my profile and see if it might suit.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You can learn Yoga, Shamanism, Meditation, Mindfulness, Reki, Crystal healing, Divination free of cost. I am happy to take you to some of our local places of interest or the bring you to public transport so you can travel where you will. I have a few kayaks and safety equipment for use at your own risk. The retreats are run on a not for profit basis and so sadly I can not offer payment for your work.

    I run a small retreat center in south east Ireland. I need help with gardening, some painting, light housework and other small jobs. I am looking for one helper or a couple.

    You will have a private bedroom, shared bathroom, excellent wifi full access to the kitchen and all food, its very informal and easy going here. I will not accept a smoker.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There is a beach and some lovely walks close by, time permitting I will take you to places of interest or to public transport so you can head off and explore by yourself. Kilkenny & Cork are old cities that can be visited using public transport. Dublin is a 3.5 hour bus ride and also a very interesting city. It's an easy going appointment where you will be treated well and looked after in return for 3/4 hours work each day for five days of the week. Usually volunteers come for a few weeks and often stay for a longer period. 70% return as friends on holidays so it can not be too bad :)
