Immerse yourself in the Buddhist way of life, learn Portuguese (if you like) and enjoy the warmth of Brazilian people. During your stay, you will help in maintenance, gardening, cleaning, etc. Work shifts are from 9am to 5pm, with pauses for coffee and meals. This is a smoke-free environment, meals are vegetarian and we don´t kill animals or insects.
