Hello Helpers

Are you ready to help finish the final stages of a Buddhist building project?

We are a Buddhist Centre run by a dedicated team of volunteers who are renovating a building in the centre of Burnley, Lancashire. We are creating a meditation space where we can offer classes and courses to help people to find inner peace and contentment and solve their human problems and to learn more about Buddhism

We are looking for a HelpX from now for about the next 3/4 weeks to help with decorating, DIY and just generally helping with what is needed.
We hope to have the building open from the beginning of Sept

You dont need any special skills (though of course if you have these could be useful), just enthusiasm, a willingness to help and an ability to be flexible.

Accomodation will either be in the upstairs of the building where there is a bedroom or in the residential house of our Buddhist Centre in a nearby town.

If you are interested, while you are with us, you will be able to attend our meditation classes and courses where these do not conflict with the working day (we have several evening classes).
In return for 35 hours per week, we offer accommodation, food and free meditation classes.

As a Buddhist community, you would need to abide by our philosophy whilst in the Centre - no eating meat, no drinking alcohol, no playing music and no smoking on the premises.

Burnley is located close to train links to Manchester and is one the edge of the beautiful Pendle countryside. Our sister Centre and residential house is located in Keighley which is situated between the famous Bronte Moors in Haworth(3 miles away),the beautiful Yorkshire Dales (Skipton, Gateway to the Dales is 20 mins on the train), picturesque Hebden Bridge (40 minute bus journey) and Saltaire (World Heritage Site) is 15 mins on the train. The cities of Leeds and Bradford are a short train journey away(25 minutes)
