It was an incredible experience; it's a place where you can connect with yourself and foster personal growth. The people there are remarkably kind and generous

The project center is a place where you can find peace, nice walks though the woods and beach that surround the castle you will live in. Everyone is very nice and they will be always available in case you need them. You also can assist to the meditations and courses to learn about buddhism. You have plenty of options from where to choose like the world peace coffee, art studio, kitchen, households, etc. Is a little bit far from the nearest town but is also a nice walk wich you willl end up enjoying it.

Very happy with the time I spent in the Center. I was really surprised by how friendly and open everyone was. What started just as a volunteer to improve the Center became something that I hope will stay with me for a long time. Many thanks for everything!

It was my longest experience volunteering so far, and I have a really good time there. I learn a lot of things in the areas I volunteered (I could experience 2, art studio and the cafe) and about the Buddhist. I meet people around all the world and that was incredible! The meals were delicious, I love it :)

My stay at the Center was one the best decision I've ever made. The experience was so amazing that my 2 weeks stay felt like a 6 months one. Every person at MKMC, resident or volunteer, was so receptive, kind and willing to help that it really feels like a big family. Everything worked as agreed and the facilities are nice, clean and organized. If you want to learn a little about Buddhism, practice English and/or visit UK, it's definitely an amazing option!
