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

Volunteers needed to help with FWBO News

If you’re reading this you probably know and love FWBO News. It is the main world-wide channel for communicating news of opportunities and developments within the Friends of the Western Buddhist Order (FWBO) and TBMSG (as the FWBO is known in India).

We aim to publish 4-5 stories every week plus occasional features and reviews, also to maintain current jobs or volunteering opportunities on our sister site FWBO Jobs.

The site is managed by Lokabandhu who lives in Glastonbury, UK. He is seeking one or more assistants to help with the editorial work of converting a raw report into a piece ready for publication. This will involve research, sub-editing, picture selection, and formatting the finished story ready for posting. There are plenty of other ways to contribute too, once a working relationship has been established. Readership is steadily growing and so are the number of stories being contributed.

You could live anywhere in the world, but would need good English, good internet access, a reasonable working knowledge of the FWBO/TBMSG – and a passion for communicating news of Dharma developments around the world to others in the Sangha.

Please contact Lokabandhu if you are interested.
