Hi wizi

This is very interesting and appreciate your help as volunteer.

I attended a retreat in Thailand last year and currently looking for a center where I can volunteer to serve during the summer (Jul-Aug). Do you have any recommendation? Normally I would go to center in Thailand but I am currently studying in France and maybe I can contribute by serving centers in this region.

Best, :anjali:

Hi there! :hello:

Yes, it is very different to serve and experience dhamma this way... since u are in France, maybe u can try to register as a volunteer in the vipassana centers in:

France, Dhamma Mahi, Champignelles, France
http://www.dhamma.org/en/schedules/schmahi.shtml


Spain, Dhamma Neru, Barcelona
http://www.dhamma.org/en/schedules/schneru.htm


Let us know if you managed to serve this summer? :namaste:

For the first time, i am helping to organise a gypsy 10 day course in Kiswahili and English in a rural part of E Africa!

Will need all the metta to get all the students we need to fill up the course...

All the best, wizi!

They usually include directions to the Centre when they send you notice your application has been approved.
That is, at the centres i have been to.
If not, then contact them.
and good luck with your course!
kind regards
