A working visit is a great way to learn new skills, experience life in a community and get a taste of meditation and Modern Buddhism. We are an international community and welcome all volunteers.
In exchange for 5 days work you will get 7 days accommodation and vegetarian or vegan meals provided. We generally require people to come for a visit of at least 2 weeks. You are very welcome to attend meditation classes and courses for free as part of your visit so long as this fits with your work schedule.
The work on offer includes cooking, cleaning, gardening, maintenance or working in the on-site World Peace Cafe. If you have any specific skills that you would like to offer we would love to hear about them.
If you’ve been attending weekly classes for a period of time, living at Tara KMC presents an ideal opportunity to live as part of a Kadampa Buddhist sangha community. We have a diverse community of ordained and ordained practitioners aswell as families.
