We are a buddhist centre set in a beautiful mansion in the rural countryside just outside of Berlin, Germany. We hold regular evening meditation classes, courses and are specialised in silent retreats. The centre is open to the public and anyone is welcome whether buddhist or non-buddhist.

As a volunteering visitor you are welcome to take part in the spiritual activities at our Centre. In the evenings you are welcome to attend any of our regular meditation classes and our daily prayers in the meditation room. In addition for all our volunteers we offer a daily short 15 min meditation as part of your experience here.

Our Values:
Our center is a peaceful space of meditation and silent retreats and we ask all our volunteers and guests are respectful of this environment. As part of that alcohol, smoking or any other form of drugs are not allowed on our premises. Also, even tho we all love animals we have a no-pet policy in order to protect the wild life a Tharpaland.

Trial period:
Sometime life happens, or things don’t work out as we wish. That’s how it is, so we have a trial period of one week for both volunteers and the center to see if its working out on both sides.

Up for a challenge?
We are looking for volunteers to help in our centre especially helping with building work in one of our historic buildings on the property, helping in the kitchen, cleaning etc., there are many activities. We have a mixed age range of 17 residents living at the centre. There are short term and long term opportunities available. We do need a reference for those wishing to come on a working visit at the centre.

We are looking for volunteers to help in our centre with the following project at the moment...
At the end of October 2017 we will host a one week long International Buddhist Festival. For this we are preparing: all accommodation, setting up all different areas for the festival, that means lots of physical work, building work, but also lots of household, cooking, decorating (internal & external), setting up beds, cleaning windows etc.
