  • Description

    Description

    Our center is a place where people aim to embody different aspects of unity. Through a continuous daily program of spiritual living, it offers a home to temporarily as well as long term visitors or residents. We function as a retreat center and school for holistic healing practices, including meditation, yoga, sound healing and sacred music. Next to these activities, we are a 'school of life' that offers her fruits and lessons through the connection that is created with each other through daily living. We work in the spirit of Karma Yoga, which can be freely translated as Love in action.

    We are looking for people who want to live in a spiritual oriented community to help us in our non-profit retreat center. Help will involve vegan cooking, cleaning, house keeping and maintaining, gardening, (optional) teaching yoga or yoga-related workshops, welcoming guests, occasionally construction,... You might work both in a team as on your own at times. The minimum age is 25 years old.

    There is a minimum stay of 2 months, although there is the possibility to extend your stay if the cooperation is going smoothly . If there are unexpected changes in the team, we might host someone for a shorter period of time, but this is rather exceptional. We have limeted volunteer spaces (3 to 6) available and receive a lot of requests. People who can commit for a minimum of 2 months always get our preference.
