VOLUNTEER

Our Center is located on 2.6 hectares of land and it consists of five buildings –  support us by volunteering your skills and knowledge!  You can enjoy a delicious meal and get some sore muscles by discovering the charms of old fashion activities such as weeding, pruning, plucking, digging, mowing etc.

Surrounded by beautiful nature, you will have an opportunity to “hone” your composure and attention through activities that resemble everyday life, yet aren’t emotionally charged and therefore much easier to practice in. See the calendar for the dates of our next volunteering opportunities.

DONATE

Our goal is simple: to share the knowledge and the methods of Chan Buddhism, in accordance with Buddha’s principle of generosity and giving (dāna). The recommended donations to participate in our meditation retreats and other programs are extremely affordable. This is thanks to the fact that everyone who participates in keeping the Center alive continuously donates their time and money, so that we can all reap the fruits of these donations and enjoy the results of Chan practice.

By donating, you are helping us create even better content and programs related to Chan Buddhism, wisdom and meditation.

Thank you!
