The form of work exchange described on volunteer websites such as Workaway, HelpX and WWOOF implies that the ratio of giving and taking is balanced. We offer so much more than just a place to stay. In our project you will get really delicious and super healthy ORGANIC food, and rustic but beautiful accommodation for 5 hours of work a day, 5 days a week.
On top of that we also offer 60 minutes of yoga, 30 minutes of guided meditation, 1-2 hours of group talking therapy, and 1-3 hours of teaching on topics suchs as earth-building techniques, gardening and permaculture, neuroscience, psychology, non violent communication, zero waste living, intermittent fasting, Buddhist philosophy and meditation, alternative methods of mind training, etc.
Once a week we attend Buddhist ceremonies with 100-200 Thai people. We get teachings from our teacher who is one of three directors of the second largest Buddhist monastery in Thailand. He got a prize from the Queen of Thailand for his exceptional work and is involved in the process of the ASEAN union. You have the opportunity to get a unique insight into Thai life and culture like hardly any project in Thailand can offer.
These (up to) 6.5 hours of extra teachings per day is offered, as well as food and accommodation, for just a very small fee; 200THB, which is the equivalent of around 5 Euros or 6 USD. Thats all. Try attending just one yoga class at home for as little as that!
In addition we are a charity which focuses on creating a strong community, teaching Thai people in English, preserving the forest, and saving the planet. We are incredibly dedicated to make a difference on this planet and thrive for a future for everybody and people love to come here to help us in any way.
