Our volunteer program is special for those who want to experience the life of an Eco Village, take part in sustainable activities such as Organic Agriculture, Eco Constructions, Sustainable Tourism, Yoga Retreats, Oriental Art, etc. At the same time, experience the stillness and harmony that the practices of Hatha Yoga and Meditation provide. It is also a good opportunity to meet people from all over the world, who constantly visit us and exchange experiences.
In Varsanas you will find many activities.
In Varsana, you as a volunteer can learn to: Cook, meditate and practice Yoga, Protect water sources, clean channels, etc. Cultivate without chemicals, paint in art therapy, support local social and educational work, dance sacred songs, work on bio-construction, work Eco-construction, support indigenous and peasant communities, carve in stone, perform music, participate in the exchange of knowledge, know the Eco-Yoga Village sector and participate in civic activism.
We ask the volunteers to contribute a small donation to the eco-village since we are a monastic community and we do not generate any external income. Donations are to cover the cost of the volunteer’s stay including food and materials. Varsana’s sustainability does not depend on these donations but they do help maintain this self-sustaining lifestyle and allow volunteers to be with us.
