Tharpaland Kadampa Meditation Centre

Volunteering at Tharpaland KMC offers a perfect opportunity to experience first-hand the Buddhist way of life within a vibrant community. There are many ways in which you can help eg. by joining in the day-to-day activities of the Centre itself, such as serving in the cafe, helping to prepare guest rooms, food preparation, gardening, joining a renovation project or Tharpa Publications.
We are located 30kms north of Berlin, situated beside woodland, just outside Schwante. Take this opportunity to be part of a diverse international community of Buddhist practitioners and volunteers, make lasting connections, and enjoy a meaningful break. Typically you will volunteer Monday to Friday but depending on the activity, it may also include weekends. Whilst these activities are not always strenuous you will need to be reasonably fit and active to come on a volunteering visit. You will have two days free each week when you can explore the Lakes, or just relax in the friendly atmosphere of the Centre.

As a volunteering visitor you are welcome to take part in many of the spiritual activities at the Centre such as pujas, weekly teachings and meditations along with weekend spiritual events. Although we all speak English, the classes offered are all in German. We will provide free dormitory accommodation and three vegetarian meals a day. Your volunteering commitment will be 30 hours (usually spread over five days). The Centre is run by volunteers living at the centre, Tharpaland is a not-for-profit organisation. You don't have to be a Buddhist to volunteer with us.

It's been my third time in Tharpaland and things have been great as always!
I'm so happy that I could meet my friends (and new ones!) again and that I could take part in the Christmas and New years party. It was so fun!

Much love for everyone!
Until the next time!

My experience was amazing & unique! From the moments we could learn and share experiences with the local people, the daily activities and all the contacts we can make with guests and other work visitors, to the peaceful place, very delicious and healthy meals. The time of the sheets are well planned and allow us to have a good time with the projects and with outside experiences. The activities can be hard sometimes for some people, they make the best to find a good opportunity for each one to help respecting their limits and abilities. Already missing this wonderful place and people I met!

Minha experiência foi incrível, tive contato com uma comunidade muito amável, que levarei com muito carinho no coração, todos foram super receptivos e gentis, a orientação quanto às atividades a serem realizadas era com muita calma e sempre mostrando o propósito.
O local é lindo, em meio a natureza, nos meus momentos livres gostava de participar das práticas de meditação, puja e aprender mais a respeito do Budismo, também aproveitava para caminhar e passear de bicicleta pela região, foi um ótimo momento para reflexão.
Deixo meu agradecimento a todos que me receberam, pretendo voltar ❣️

Fueron dos semanas de trabajo físico un poco intenso de lunes a viernes de 9:09 a 17:00, pero teníamos receso de media hora y también una hora para comer.
En mi caso fue colaborar pintando completamente algunas habitaciones y pasillos.
Si acaso lo único que no me agrado es que el lugar está alejado de todo, pero si se busca tranquilidad ahí es el lugar ideal.
Ah y la comida es vegetariana que no es mi tipo de comida pero cocinaban muy bien
