It was my first experience, and the best! I'm sure I chose the right place to start the year volunteering. Everyone at the center is attentive, even if you don't speak English well, and you have the opportunity to improve. I made many friends that I want to keep for life, and I hope to come back here next year. Jordan and Jason are excellent professionals who helped me with everything. Sian is a spectacular and patient person. Additionally, the rooms are great, and you feel very safe staying here. The food is wonderful; I'll continue to eat well with the recipes I learned to make here.

It was an incredible experience that enriched both my personal and professional life. The time I spent there allowed me to learn about Buddhism and its practices, which helped me gain deeper insights into myself and my surroundings. The people at the center were truly amazing. I met many wonderful individuals and made numerous connections that I will cherish for a long time. I am immensely grateful for the experience and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a meaningful and enriching volunteer opportunity.

Being part of the project team was the best experience in my life, this volunteering changed my life and was a safe space to had deep reflections about my life, my relationship with other people. The community is charming and the people are very kind and patient, you can learn and practice english, have access to meditation workshops and the vegetarian food is amaizing. We had a very good relationship with the volunteers and residents of the center. I feel really lucky to live this experience and I totally recommend it. I will be back :)

This was one of favorite experiences as a volunteer in UK. I learned a lot. People were lovely; especially Jason, one of the managers of the Cafe, because he could really connect with his teams during this time I was there. He is an amazing leader and a very patient person. If you decide to go, get ready for deeply connections with people and awareness learnings. Thanks to everyone involved in this volunteer. Love you all! I definitely recommend this volunteer experience!!! 🙏
