Shambala Gatherings

Volunteering at Shambala Gatherings is always a memorable experience in which you live and work closely with our team and help take care of our retreat centre and guests.

Volunteers enjoy three delicious vegan meals a day, access to yoga classes, singing, dance and music-making sessions, woodfired sauna as well as many other activities created especially for the volunteer team.

Located on the shore of a small lake in the middle of the Swedish forest, there are plenty of hiking options as well as the chance to swim or use our canoe.

We have been hosting volunteers for almost twenty years and have developed a large international community of guests and volunteers who return to us time after time. Many of our volunteers form friendships here which continue outside Shambala.

There are plenty of opportunities for personal growth at Shambala and our volunteers typically find a stay here to be a rich, diverse and fulfilling experience.

You will receive full training in your role as well as ongoing support from our on-site manager during your stay. Comfortable accommodation is available in our shared rooms (all year round) or in luxury glamping tents (summer only).

We really take care of our volunteer team and think of each person as more of a 'community member'. We have a staff role dedicated to ensuring the wellbeing of our volunteers by supporting them in their work tasks as well as any personal issues.

Shambala was a heart opening experience. I felt so supported in my journey, and so connected to such a wonderful group of friends. The focus really felt like it was on our experience as individuals, making sure we're having a nice time, the focus was around that and less on the work so that felt really nice for a change. This was a life changing experience that has helped me a lot emotionally and has left me with some amazing friends who I've since met up with and stay in touch. I highly recommend this experience to people wanting to live in community. It amazing! Thank you Shambala <3

Shambala was everything I was hoping it’d be and more. I met people from all around the world who became forever friends, I enjoyed time in nature/stillness, I took classes I would never have the opportunity to take elsewhere. The work was enjoyable regardless of the task because the people in my community made me feel appreciated. If you enjoy being away from the city & want to experience community living, Shambala is for you. The hours are flexible depending on the task and the management is very open to adjusting for your specific needs. I feel so blessed for my time here.
