The Experience

Dhutanga Meditation Center is a well established but always growing place. You'll be asked to help 5-6 hours/day with general maintenance (basic cleaning, maintenance and feeding dogs and fishes, mostly) or with other skills you may have and want to share with us (photography, social media, languages...). Also, you will be asked to follow the 5 basic Buddhist precepts and practice meditation with us. No worries! You will enjoy it a lot :)

Life changing experience. From the beginning to the end it was mind-opening.
We were told this stay will allow us to reunite with our core and gain a new perspective to life. By the end of the trip it became more than true.
Spent a lot of time and had Dhamma talks with Luang Mae and Luang Pee Anja & Pa. They didn’t only taught us about Buddhism but truly showed that they care about us. The tasks were minor and very enjoyable. Connected with myself and my surrounding on a deep-level. I cannot wait to come back again ♥️ My eternal gratitude!

If you wanna learn more about meditation and buddhism I would really recommend this place! You get the chance to get to know yourself and relax in nature at the same time. I really enjoyed my stay there! The task are easy and the food is really good. While I was there, there was a young monk there who taught us a lot about buddhism.

Firts experience as a volunteer and it couldn’t been better! I highly recommend this place. Here you’ll find pace, respect, beautiful people, caring, kindness and mindfulness. During my staying Punya was travelling so we had the lucky to be the students of an ex volunteer who had became monk. We learned a lot about Buddhism and had the chance of practice a lot of meditation during or free time. I’d love to come back here soon! This place change my life and will be home forever ♥️

A wonderful place to discover more about Buddhism, meditation and the mind. Punya, the head monk, is very kind and intelligent and is always there to help you.

It was my first experience with meditation and learning about the self and mind, for sure it was a really cool experience.
The only down side was one of the dogs made the volunteers a bit uneasy.
Be sure to explore the neighbourhood in your free time, take out the kayaks, talk to locals and take the public transport to the local markets!
Learn about meditation or if you need to challenge your life values!

I don’t understand all the positive reviews about this center. I’ve had a very negative experience. There is not teaching at all about meditation and Buddhism. One talk in seven days.
Yes “we do meditate” but like you can do it on your own at home. So follow a youtube video.
I only agree that is a beautiful and peaceful place. But it's too big to be handle for four monks that’s why they ask for volunteers so we do the work. They ask for donations for everything. The laundry is not free, as they say, you have to pay for it. We didn’t have toilet paper because not donations, so buy it!
