Program details

Arizona Buddhist retreat center work exchange and volunteer program

Diamond Mountain Retreat Center is located in the Chiricahua Mountains of Southeast Arizona, USA. It’s a beautiful and magical buddhist center, inspired by the Tradition of Je Tsongkapa. The center has almost 30 unique cottages  which were built specifically for retreat purposes and are available to rent. Courses and retreats on Buddhism, meditation, and yoga as well as volunteer programs are offered to visitors throughout the year, so volunteer help is much needed to run this off-grid project seamlessly.
