We are based in a Grade II* Romantic Gothic mansion located just south of the English Lake District. It is situated in 70 acres of woodland and gardens on the shores of Morecambe Bay. It provides a quiet and reflective environment for a meaningful break.

The help required is varied and might include cooking, helping in the garden, household, doing office tasks, decorating etc. We also have various building projects at present that you could get involved in. We are always interested to hear about any specific skills you may be able to offer. Although the work is not always strenuous you will need to be reasonably fit and active to come on a volunteering visit.

In the Kadampa Art Studio there is scope to volunteer in the Finishing Team, assisting with sanding and filling etc. of Statues and Temple Adornments bound for destinations around the world. Short and longterm voluntary visits are available.

The week is generally Monday to Friday but some Weekends are required. 2 days free time so an ideal time to travel into the Lakes, Coniston is only half hour drive away, or just relax in the friendly atmosphere of the centre

As a volunteering visitor you are welcome to take part in the spiritual activities at our Centre. In the evenings you can attend General Programme classes on Buddhist thought and meditation or you can attend daily prayers in the Temple and at weekends we hold Prayers for World Peace.

What we have to offer is varied and provides a perfect opportunity to experience the Buddhist way of life first hand for a week or more. You will get a chance to meet people from all over the world, to discuss and experience first hand beneficial effects of Buddhist meditation and practises.

A volunteer visit can be arranged for short term or long term periods but we reserve the right to ask a volunteer to leave if problems arise.

Wifi access is available.

Volunteering hours expected
Approx 5 hours a day, 5 days a week
