    Description

    Hello! We are an international buddhist organisation

    Our center in Stockholm will this summer (2019) organize a summer retreat 15-22 of July, and for this occasion we need minimum 2 persons to volunteer taking care of the participants children during the day.

    The summerretreat will take place in Dalarna, a beautiful part of Northern Sweden. Close to the retreat center there are beautiful forests suitable for nature walks and a lake with a nearby sauna, at disposal.
    Closeby is the city of Falun, an old Swedish city. Dalarna is like experiencing Sweden in a miniature. The mountains and the Sami culture, the lakes and mountains, the red cottages, the craft tradition and the exciting industrial history. Everything gathered up close.

    The retreat will take place at Lindsberg, a big old beautiful house, which is run by a collective of people interested in healthy food, gardening, environment, democratic values, art and solidarity. Read more about the venue of Lindberg and see photos of the room at .

    We are organizing a meditation retreat at Lindsberg and some of the participants will be bringing their children to the retreat, so what we need help with is child care. We are not sure yet of how many kids there will be but between 3 and 7 kids of ages 2 and 7 years old. We will need help 5 hours per day and the rest of the day you are free to enjoy the beautiful surrondings.

    You will be sleeping in dorms of maximum 10 people probably less and the food is vegetarian mainly vegan and a lot of the veggies are locally produced. If you have special diat let us know. Food and accomodation is included.
