About the volunteer exchange program
The 14-Day Volunteer Exchange program is an opportunity to experience life at Happy Buddha Retreat and benefit from the retreat program as well.
As a volunteer you will be joining a team of enthusiastic people from Australia and around the world who are a big part of what makes Happy Buddha great.
All ages are welcome (as long as you’re over 18!) and open to a variety of cultural backgrounds too.
You’ll find this program to be insightful and even transformative! People who are enthusiastic about living a conscious, yogic lifestyle, whether this is already your lifestyle or you would like to try it out are encouraged to apply. These two weeks are going to be amazing!
Accommodation for volunteers in is our Buddha Barn, a house situated just next door to the main guest accommodation. The Buddha Barn is an eclectic mix and has all that you need including a common areas, lots of past volunteer artwork, musical instruments, communal kitchen and shared facilities.
Rooms are big and you may get a single room or a shared room with others. During the retreats you will eat the same delicious meals as our retreat guests and on the days when there are no retreats, the volunteers get together and cook communal meals.
The best part of this 14-Day Program is that you get to take part in at least one retreat including opening and closing circles, yoga, mindfulness and drumming! This is the best of both worlds as you also have the chance to live with like minded people and help behind the scenes at the retreat centre.
