Manjushri Kadampa Meditation Centre

Volunteering at Manjushri Kadampa Meditation Centre (Manjushri KMC) offers an opportunity to experience first-hand the Buddhist way of life within a vibrant, international community. There are many ways in which you can help. For example, serving in the cafe, helping to prepare guest rooms, cooking, gardening or joining a renovation project.

We are located just south of the English Lake District, situated in 70 acres of woodland and gardens, on the shores of Morecambe Bay. Take this opportunity to be part of a diverse international community of Buddhist practitioners and volunteers, make lasting connections, and enjoy a meaningful break. Typically you will volunteer Monday to Friday but depending on the activity, it may also include weekends. Whilst these activities are not always strenuous you will need to be reasonably fit and active to come on a volunteering visit. You will have two days free each week when you can explore the Lakes, or just relax in the friendly atmosphere of the Centre. As a volunteering visitor you are welcome to take part in many of the spiritual activities at Manjushri Centre such as evening classes and weekend courses.

I had an incredible experience. I learned a lot about art and my supervisors were amazing. I also had the opportunity to learn about meditation and Buddhism. Here you can connect with nature and it's close to the Lake District, beaches and beautiful small towns. I met people from all over the world and it was special to be able to share with them. This place and all the people here will always be in my heart. I hope to visit again.

I had an amazing time at Manjushri !! The place is beautiful, surrounded by nature, the people are so kind and patient (you can ask the nuns and monks whatever question you have about Buddhism they will be more than happy to answer), the work hours are respected and the job is not too difficult. I learned a lot about Buddhism and about myself. I also made great friends there and had a lot of fun.
I can't wait to come back ❤️

Mi experiencia en Kadampa Art Studio fue buena, las tareas a realizar puede que sean algo monótonas pero no son difíciles, el ambiente ahí se sentía como una fábrica ya que teníamos que checar hora de entrada, salida y comida; si las supervisoras nos veían platicando nos interrumpían, nuestros turnos eran de 8hrs entre semana y cuando salíamos, por el cambio de horario, ya estaba oscuro para hacer algo. No recomendable para ti si lo que buscas es salir a conocer ya que el templo se encuentra a 40min caminando de la ciudad más cercana. Todas las personas fueron muy amables y conocí gente genial

I had a great experience at Manjushri. It’s a very special place with wonderful people. I learned so much in two weeks and really enjoyed the daily meditation classes. This is a nice place to connect with nature, grow as a person and be surrounded by great people in a peaceful environment. I would highly recommend spending time here. I hope to visit again :)

I had an amazing 2 weeks here! Everything is very organized and comfortable, there’s usually 30 or so volunteers so there’s plenty of people to meet, the food is amazing, and the location is beautiful with plenty of fun things to do nearby during your time off. My supervisor Thourya (I worked in household) was so wonderful and kind and I loved working with my team :) It’s also a great place to learn more about Buddhism if you’re interested and there are a couple free meditations available to volunteers in the afternoon. Highly recommend volunteering here, I hope to come back someday!
