Free eco-sanctuary volunteer program in a silent retreat in Bali
Deep in the heart of Tabanan, at the base of the Balinese holy mountain Batu Karu you’ll find Bali Silent Retreat, one of the best silent retreats in the world. It’s more than a yoga and meditation retreat – it’s an eco-sanctuary with restorative and inspirational programs and events. This unique place has it’s own special rules: guests can talk softly inside the bungalow but respectful silence is honored with no social talking except during trips to the hotsprings, rice terrace hike, garden tour, temple tour, etc.
About the volunteer and work exchange program
Volunteers at Bali Silent Retreat work 30 hours a week, making various contributions such as:
- teaching yoga
- leading meditation classes
- doing research
- washing dishes
- working in the gardens
- and adding to the spirit of the retreat.
Being part of the volunteer team is a great way to offer service, to live in community, to learn new ways to lead a class of yoga or meditation and to see the sights of rural Bali. While you chill out you can ponder on your on journey of personal and spiritual development.
Things to do in your freetime
There are many great places to visit in your freetime in the area, volunteers will have a chance to go to the hot springs or hike the rice fields or meditate in the yoga bale or chill out at their volunteer home.
