Dharmakaya Center for Wellbeing

Perched atop a hill amid 90 acres of woods—a deeply spiritual setting—the Dharmakaya Center for Wellbeing is a sacred space in a busy world, a place of solitude and regeneration. Our mission is to provide a wide range of practices drawn from ancient wisdom, for all levels of interest, in order to cultivate physical and emotional wellbeing in the greatest number of people. Our programs range from traditional teachings by very high Buddhist lamas to yoga and qi gong to more secular mindfulness-based programs. People also join us on personal retreat. With room for about 30 guests, the experience is always quite intimate, and guests, volunteers and staff mix freely. Nearby hiking trails provide opportunities for downtime exploration.

With only four in full-time staff, the Dharmakaya Center is largely run by volunteers (me, for instance). Volunteers work as a team, and are treated as family. The number of longstanding and repeat volunteers we receive speaks to the power of their experience with us.

I had an extraordinary stay at Dharmakaya during the quiet time of year, which was perfect for going deeper into my personal practices.

The space is serenely beautiful, the staff were welcoming, and the tasks were well organized.

Some of the highlights of my stay include conversations with staff, guests and volunteers from all walks of life; learning some top-notch vegetarian cooking; deepening my meditation practices; and impromptu grand adventures during our days off which I'll fondly recall and share with my grandchildrens someday.

Would love to return some day soon!

Dharmakaya is such a quaint little place with some of the kindest and most diligent folk you can find. I highly recommend this experience to anyone with kitchen experience that may be looking for a place to begin or further their study of Tibetan Buddhism.

This was my first Worldpackers work exchange and overall my experience was amazing! The facilities/rooms at Dharmakaya are great, everything is so comfy and clean. The staff and other volunteers were some of the best people I’ve ever met they were really helpful and we worked well together as a team. The grounds and nature in the area are absolutely beautiful and there are many places you can go for a hike/nature walk. I stayed for almost 2 months and I always felt safe, ate some of the best vegetarian/vegan food of my life, and even got to attend some of the program classes. So thankful! 🫶🏽
