We are developing a beacon for our evolutionary future dedicated to an awakening of the human spirit and sustainability in harmony with Nature. The ashram/farm is in a beautiful secluded valley with a stream running through above a gorge of cascading waterfalls below.
We are looking for responsible, hardworking volunteers who are passionate about being the change they want to see in the world. No smoking, no drugs, no drinking alcohol.

We offer a full spectrum transformative experience encompassing spiritual awakening, meditation, group inquiry, yoga, qi gong, permaculture, vegetarian diet.
Volunteering here is a full immersion into our approach to spiritual awakening, community living, nature communion and working on the land.
However, it is important to understand that Spirit comes first, so it has more the ambience of an ashram than an ecovillage or permaculture farm. If you are primarily looking for an ecovillage-permaculture-sustainability experience then it is not for you. If your primary interest is in resonance with our vision, philosophy and practice then it is for you! Living in harmony with the ecological web of life is important to us but they are secondary dimensions.
As a volunteer you commit to join us for meditation practice every morning and you will have access to a weekly question and answer "satsang" session with the co-founders Pete and/or Cynthia. One day per week is designated as a silent day for deepening meditation and contemplation which usually ends in the evening with a group discussion or audio/video. There will also be a weekly volunteer meeting and personal guidance if you request it.
We have a new policy for our volunteer program. We ask that volunteers come the first Monday of the month and stay for a minimum of 1 month. Over the years we have found that this gives time for people to engage with the Project and each other, also we found that too many people coming and going is not helpful for anyone. If you would like to stay longer then you would need to apply for 2 months.
There are trails for hiking, waterfalls for dipping and hammocks for relaxing. We are a project focused on evolving culture through conscious participation so if you are interested in evolving and developing for the sake of a new future for all then we may be the place for you.
