Dharmakaya Center for Wellbeing

Perched atop a hill amid 90 acres of woods—a deeply spiritual setting—the Dharmakaya Center for Wellbeing is a sacred space in a busy world, a place of solitude and regeneration. Our mission is to provide a wide range of practices drawn from ancient wisdom, for all levels of interest, in order to cultivate physical and emotional wellbeing in the greatest number of people. Our programs range from traditional teachings by very high Buddhist lamas to yoga and qi gong to more secular mindfulness-based programs. People also join us on personal retreat. With room for about 30 guests, the experience is always quite intimate, and guests, volunteers and staff mix freely. Nearby hiking trails provide opportunities for downtime exploration.

With only four in full-time staff, the Dharmakaya Center is largely run by volunteers (me, for instance). Volunteers work as a team, and are treated as family. The number of longstanding and repeat volunteers we receive speaks to the power of their experience with us.

Thank you for the amazing experience in Dharmakaya 🤍 I’ll definitely be back soon! The amazing team work that the volunteers create is what makes the differences 🫶🏼.
The center needs a manager and need to improve in many ways. But I know it will get better and better with time, love and respect.
It’s a lot of work in the weekends (for the way they split the tasks because is not difficult, it just feels like you work all the time cuz you are always around fixing stuff).
I’m leaving with new memories, new friends and many points of view about life. Loved every single day of my stay. Xoxo

Dharmakaya was such a wonderful place! I made such wonderful friendships in my month here, got to meet people from all over the world, and I got to experience many different types of yoga/meditation/mindfulness. Organization and leadership could be improved in a few areas, but they know this and are working on it! You'll meet some beautiful souls here and see some lovely mountains

We were thrilled to have you with us—your willingness and enthusiasm made the whole Center a better place. And I'm so glad we were able to introduce you to snow, as promised! We are glad you will be back soon—and hope it will be often!



The most generous host I’ve ever seen! The meals are amazing, the room is private and cozy, we can participate in many classes. There were volunteers from all around the world and that was amazing! It’s surrounded by nature and if you want to take a breath from the world this is the place, if you want party, lots of people and city vibes, this is not the place.
