We are a Buddhist community 180km north of Stockholm. We need volunteers to help out with building and gardening. You work 5 hours a day and you will get free lodging and food. If you are interested in meditation is a plus since we going to meditate three times a day.

The aim of the community is to create a place and a situation where we can support each other's spiritual development. However if we are in a phase in our life where we do not meditate, it is important not to hinder others to do so.
We will, as best we can, live in harmony with nature and the environment, and eat vegetarian food at the common meals. We sort out the garbage, compost and use eco-friendly electricity. There is a shared respect for nature and the environment.
The goal is to build a community that goes a little deeper than just living together and trying in various ways to create an open and generous home for people to meet. We take responsibility for our own feelings and do not project them on others and we will develop our ability to communicate and relate to each other. A good relationship with others always starts with a good relationship with ourselves. Therefore meditation is important.
Some days we might want to be by ourselves and want to be in silence. Other days we might like to socialize. With good friends, we can do what we want, with the best of friends, we can do nothing. We are working to get rid of guilt and shame, which suppress our deepest emotions.
We leave television back at home. If you want to use the computer, such as for work, you should be in your room to avoid disturbing others. Radio will be available in the kitchen. We try to avoid any electronic interference as much as possible. Silence is all we need. Drugs or alcohol are not allowed. For more information see the webpage.
