We realise that not everyone can volunteer for 28 days and there are many people who only have a few days to spare. Which is why we have initiated a short-term volunteer program. Short-term volunteers can stay for a minimum of 5 days.
- Work only 4 hours per day
- Enjoy Yoga, Meditation & Delicious Vegetarian food
- Great company with volunteers & staff
- Plenty of spare time to relax at our beautiful eco-village
Short Term Volunteers will be accommodated at our Yoga Wellness Center. The dormitory rooms include an en-suite bathroom and private balcony and can accommodate up to 4 people. But if you come alone and if there are no other short-term volunteers during that period; you may have the room to yourself. Males and females are accommodated separately, but couples may be accommodated together.
Jobs at Ananda Suruci are varied and depend on the season. During the winter we grow most of our vegetables and in the summer we mostly focus on caring for the fruit trees etc. Work in the farm involves planting, harvesting, mulching, weeding, making compost, irrigating and cutting grass etc.
We also produce jam and pickles and recently opened a part-time bakery. Cooking for staff & volunteers, cleaning, light construction, repairs and beautifying our space is also a welcome help.
Volunteers with farming, carpentry, bread making, food processing and vegetarian cooking experience are especially welcome.
NT$1,000 per night, per person, inclusive of all meals and accommodation.
When to come
We can accept short-term volunteers all year round, depending on availability. Just let us know when you would like to come.
We are open for anyone interested to work in a spiritual environment, and expect that you will respect our spiritual norms and values during your stay. We maintain a healthy life style, including a vegetarian healthy diet, no smoking, no alcohol, no drugs. Only vegetarian food is served on our premises and it is a requirement that the volunteers, while they are in our compound, refrain from smoking and using any alcohol or drugs.
