  • Description


    We invite you to contribute some of your positive energy to building a meditation center in a small remote village in Southern Bulgaria!

    Surrounded by beautiful valleys, hills and mountains, this place offers peaceful lifestyle, clean environment and escape from civilization.

    We are a couple (Max and Marina) in their 30s. We like to travel, explore new cultures and food. We try to lead simple joyful life. Together with project some days we work online, which leaves us not too much time to spend with volunteers. But once per week we like to go on a lake or hike somewhere and invite everyone to join us.

    Welcome in April-June 2019!
    Minimal stay is 1 week.

    Grab a bottle of beer and sit by the fire.
    Watch colorful sunsets from the roof terrace.
    Eat fresh berries, organic garden products (at summer/autumn).
    Learn about meditation (Satipatthana/Vipassana) We don't hold retreats or dhamma lessons yet, but will be happy to suggest some reading and discuss some issues that interest you.
