The Experience

As a meditation retreat center we rely on volunteer support for all our operations, and we would be happy for you to join us. Typically, your responsibilities will be in housekeeping, garden/grounds, or the kitchen (sometimes all three), although you may also help run programs. All staff help with dishes. As part of our community, you will have unparalleled access to our teachers, and may participate in most programs, space and time permitting.

I'm forever grateful that Trevania gave me the opportunity to spend 2.5 months at the Center. The center gave me so many wonderful memories and leaving this place was one of the hardest things I'd ever had to do. Most of the people I met here felt like the family that I'd never had. They gave me so much love and appreciation, things I never really felt in my own "home". Being around people who speaks my language (read: spirituality) was so much fun and enlightening. I'm back in Jakarta now but a part of me is still there.

Astri, we were so lucky to get to keep you as long as we did. Thank you for everything you did for us—not just the work, but being such a tremendous part of our community. Wishing you all good things.

It was a pleasure to be a part of the Center team. The tasks were fair, with the intent of the best stay possible for both the guests and volunteers here. With it being around Christmas, they made sure we had everything needed (along with a gingerbread house to decorate!) I highly recommend this place if you are looking to expand your spiritual and physical self, along with having a home away from home. From the nourishing meals to the scenic trails nearby... thank you to everyone here.

Great people and perfect views! I enjoyed my time cooking and cleaning with the amazing team here. I feel I grew as a person and I will keep the memories for as long as possible. I am truly thankful for this experience. For anyone having second thoughts, I will just say, "just go for it!"
