Opportunity at EcoDharma in Spain

Maitrisara writes with news of an opportunity for anyone over50 looking for a stay in the Pyrenees this autumn. She says -

“Grant funding enables us to offer 6 expenses paid places on a volunteering project at the EcoDharma centre between 1 and 2 months in September and October 2010. (

"EcoDharma is a Buddhist based community living in a remote valley in the Catalan Pyrenees. The wild beauty is incredible as are the ideas talked about over supper! The influences on the centre’s philosophy include radical ecology, The Work that Reconnects, engaged Buddhism, systems theory and holistic experiential learning.

“You need to be over 50 (yes we know that’s a bit strange but that is what the funding is for!) and reasonably fit. Living as part of the community, you will be involved in the garden and building projects. If you know a bit about permaculture, building or capentry, food preserving - this might particularly suit you. Get in touch with Maitrisara - if you want to know more about it and are interested.

“Please pass on to anyone you think would be interested (in the right age bracket!!)

With warm wishes

Would you like to live in a men's Buddhist community in London?

Sukhavati currently has 2 spaces.

Based above the London Buddhist Centre (LBC), Sukhavati is a community of 9 practicing Buddhists. We are a friendly group of men who enjoy living together and aim to support each other in our practice and to overcome differences through communication. The community has a long and distinguished history going back 30 years. It is being refurbished at the moment and should be shiny and new by this August. We're looking for people who would enjoy living with others and who are willing to engage in communal life.

This is an ideal opportunity for someone who wants to experience the richness of the LBC mandala. The LBC is at the heart of a thriving local sangha and close by is the lovely Victoria park. We are very close to a tube station with good connections to central London.
