    Tasks are many and varied depending on your skills and interests, and what's needed in the centre at the time, such as building and maintenance, gardens, household, decorating, etc.
    In exchange for 25 hours help you get dorm accommodation for seven nights. The daily schedule consists of five hours work and includes tea breaks and lunch breaks. Volunteers can attend free meditation classes during their stay. It's ideal if you can arrive on a Sunday to begin volunteering on the Monday.
