  • Descripción


    We are an international Buddhist center, with guests from around the world, who are interested in Tibetan Buddhism and spiritual practice.
    Since 2004 we are renovating an old farmhouse in Upper Austria, situated in the picturous region of the Salzkammergut, amidst mountains, lakes and woods.
    Kindness, loving care, respect, awareness, and meditation in action are the basic motivations of our project.
    We are looking for people who have the same joy for helping and caring for our place as we have and who are not simply looking for "food and shelter", but who want to become part of our team during their stay.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    Here you can learn very much, on many different levels:
    Personal growth: Being in an environment of spiritual practice can teach you a lot about how to deal with your emotions, thoughts, and challenges that come from living and working together with others.

    Buddhist practice: If you are interested you can join our daily group meditation and the weekend teachings and seminars on Buddhist philosophy by authentic Tibetian Lamas. We have found that to be very helpful to understand how the place works, and the ethics and motivation of the place.

    Skills: We are a team of people with many skills and talents that you can learn from (carpeting, gardening, farming, construction works..)

    Algo más...

    As we are all volunteers here (also those who run the place full time), we are trying to let everyone who wishes to become part of our larger team, while maintaining a balance between the workaway structure and our rhythm and needs.

    This is why we offer the workaway agreement for 2 weeks max, if you wish to stay longer (up to 3 months) please let us know in your message.

    After completing two weeks as a workaway, you can extend your stay under the 'volunteer' agreement, which entails different terms.

    Please only apply to volunteer with us up to 2 months before your estimated arrival date.


    After settling in on your arrival day you would help out for 5 days, followed by two days off (the exact timing might vary)

    For your free days, you can either:

    Stay and visit our seminars for free- if they fit you
    (if you stay in the center on your rest days we would kindly ask for help with dishes)
    Travel and see the surroundings (Gmunden, go hiking in the lake district, Salzburg).
