‘Volunteering from home’ volunteer – opportunities available now!!
Having the opportunity and circumstances to ‘take time out’ and physically be at Gomde is rare. But all is not lost as it is possible to volunteer from a distance.

We currently have a number of people who offer both major and ad hoc support to Gomde at a distance. If you have a skill that you would like to share and develop we would be delighted to hear from you.

Currently we have help with media and marketing, accountancy and bookkeeping, visa team, transcribing teachings, event management and preparation, fundraising and procurement for the shop. There are lots of way to help please get in touch so we can work out together what your contribution could be.
Practitioner volunteer
Part practice and part volunteer. People who wish to deepen their practice in a supportive environment whilst also willing to help on different levels perhaps Dharma related eg helping with the meditation hall, daily practice and meet and greet of our visitors or related to the care of the community such a preparation of meals. These part time volunteers pay a non-commercial rate for their stay and offer agreed periods of service.
Short term resident volunteers
As restrictions reduce we are able to accept interest from those keen to join our resident community short term.

As a short term resident volunteer you would be involved 5 days per week, 6–7 hours per day in an agreed range of activities, according to your interests, skills and Gomde’s needs. All resident volunteers are invited to join the community in group practice, use the library, meditation hall and explore the beauty and seclusion of the estate. We welcome volunteers who can offer a specific time period for volunteering for 2 weeks to 3 months.
We have a part time volunteer programme that enables people to stay at Gomde and offer their skills to offset the costs of staying here.
Part time help ~ daily 4 hours — fees for food and accommodation £20 per day.
