Although we cannot accept volunteers immediately, we do need you and we can accept applications. Therefore please do apply, and we will contact you as soon as our centre is open again.
We're a Buddhist Meditation Centre set in the heart of Leicester city centre in England, only one and a half hours from London. We're close to shops, cafes, gyms, cinemas, yoga studios, parks and a beautiful covered market.
We have a large meditation room, modern en-suite bunk bed dorms accommodating up to 4 people per room. We also have a World Peace Cafe, host regular meditation classes, meditation courses, and special events promoting the development of inner peace, compassion and wisdom.
We welcome everybody, Buddhist or non-Buddhist.
We are looking for volunteers to help in our World Peace Cafe, cleaning, painting, and office work. There's a mixed age range of residents living here and a thriving community.
As a working volunteer, you will be asked to work 35 hours per week. This is based on a scheduled rota with your days off planned in advance. In return for your work, we offer;
* Free food (3 standard meals per day)
* Free tea & coffee facilities
* Free accommodation including bedding and towels
* Free laundry facilities
* Free access to all of our meditation classes, teachings, courses and events.
There are short-term and long-term opportunities available from a minimum of three weeks stay.
Because we are a Buddhist community we ask that you observe some basic Buddhist rules whilst staying at our centre. These are;
* No Lying
* No Killing
* No Stealing
* No Intoxicants (Alcohol)
* No Sexual Miss-conduct
If you would like to apply, we ask that you complete a short application form on our website https://meditateinleicester.org/volunteering/
We do require a reference, however we can accept a recommendation from a previous help-x host if they have posted a review on your profile. Please mention this in your application if this applies.
We have lots of information about our centre on our website. https://meditateinleicester.org Please have a look. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
