**We are full now until the beginning of October. Of course you can still always try to ask for the time before, sometimes people jump off again!**

**We are especially, but not only, looking for people that are able and willing to stay longer (one season or more) and take over some responsibility in the areas of kitchen and/or service/reception. You don't necessarily have to be a professional! For service/reception only people who speak fluently German. Feel free to contact us for further information.**

We are a Hotel / Seminar house on the Rigi-mountain in the center of Switzerland near Lucerne. We are located at 1300m above sea level, in a beautiful natural landscape of alpine meadows covered in flowers in the summer and snow in the winter.
There is no direct vehicle access to the mountain and all visitors and helpers must make their way up via the Rigi mountain train. However the station “Rigi-Klösterli” is located 3 minutes walk from the hotel.
We are a spiritual community of around 8 to 20 people between 20 and 70, some are here permanently and others are coming and going. You will most probably also meet other volunteers! There is the possibility to join the morning meditations and to take part in the weekly singing evening.
Our intention is to go through the day mindfully with each other and to come again and again into the Here and Now. You are heartily invited to feel free in finding your own way and rhythm in living together in our community.
We speak Swiss German, German, English and some French.

We are looking for motivated, self-reliant helpers, who find joy in their work. You need to be fit and healthy and interested in working towards your own inner peace and well being - in coordination with our work for the well being of our guests.
We expect six hours a day of work with two free days per week. This includes biological, vegetarian food and lodging with your own room (picture number 4). Vegan is also possible.
There is a WiFi-access in the lobby and on the floor where the helper's rooms are located.

You must be willing to work where help is needed for the length of your stay; it could be housekeeping, kitchen work/dishwashing or house/garden renovations, depending on the season and the requirements of the hotel. We prefer people to stay at minimum five weeks.
Because of Swiss law we need to ask you to pay a fee of 150 Swiss Francs (around 135 Euro) for your stay. However, if you feel you are interested but can not afford this, feel free to talk to us in beforehand and we will see if we can find another solution!

Thank you for reading our profile and if you decide to send us a request now, we do really appreciate if you directly tell us for which time you would be available:)
