EVERYBODY needs to work on everything here. But, you can bring in your gift in any areas of the guesthouse - whether in the office, in marketing, in the kitchen, in the garden, on one of our castle construction sites, in guest hospitality, as a yoga instructor, etc. ... There are plenty of opportunities here.
Generally it's about hotel maintenance, renovating, building, carpentry, cleaning and gardening.
Volunteers will be given food, including breakfast and lunch, and are required to clean up after themselves. This is separate from the work related to maintaining the grounds of the castle, usually 5 to 6 hours a day, six days a week.
We want you to enjoy your stay here, but please remember that your stay is not just a holiday. Work needs to be done at the castle. Nevertheless, you will have enough free time to explore the nature and surrounding areas and cities!
At the end of the stay, you will get a certificate stating the
successful accomplishment of the programm including all
activites you were practising and got experienced in. You can use this
certificate as a document of reference for your next activities / employment.
- minimum stay is three months but you may ask for an a exception
- no drugs, no medications whatsoever.
- no toplessness (male or female!)
- daily exercise/meditation from 6 - 7 am, common breakfast between 7 and 8am. 8am to 2pm: working time, at 2 pm, we meet again for a common lunch, afternoon is a free time (there is no common time for dinner - eat when you are hungry :-))
You share a dormitory and a bathroom with all the volunteers. We ask you to keep the dorm clean and tidy at ALL times.
We only provide vegetarian food. Meat is not allowed in our kitchen.
We’re located at a hidden and mysterious place right on a line of high energy (ley line). When it was built, almost 1000 years ago, our ancestors must have been aware of their connection to heaven and earth and of forces, that many contemporary fellows wouldn't have acknowledged.
Here it is not just about hard work. Your stay here will bring loads of benefits such as:
- flexibility of tasks
- learning the theory and practice of the law of nature
- working your way around cultural and linguistic problems
- meeting people from all over the world
- hatha yoga and meditation
- homemade cooking
- plenty of things to do on your spare time besides sitting on your computer
- social behaviour
- practical knowledge
- language learning
Are you open-minded, responsible and willing to try your best?
Then go ahead and apply.
As a part of your application please let us know more about yourself and share with us dates you want to voluneer at our place. Most importantly please write us why you want to join the Healing Castle.
