Be part of out Community
A working visit is a great way to experience life in a Buddhist community, and get a taste of meditation and Buddha’s teachings.
In exchange for a 25 hour week (usually spread over 5 days) you will get 7 days accommodation and food provided. There is also an opportunity to attend classes running at the Centre out of the working hours.
The week will involve a variety of work which could include cooking, cleaning, gardening or working in the World Peace Cafe. If you have any specific skills that you would like to offer we would love to hear about them.
During your free time you can enjoy the peaceful and beautiful environment of Tara KMC, join any courses running here at that time or explore the local Derbyshire Countryside.
We welcome single people, couples and families to come and be full-time residents at Tara Centre.
There are many benefits to living at a Dharma Centre:
An opportunity to thoroughly immerse oneself in the spiritual life of the centre Being part of a Bodhisattva family working to benefit others Forming deep Sangha friendships Learning new skills Helping Dharma to flourish Opportunities to cherish others in many different ways
Every resident attends a study programme: General Programme (GP), Foundation Programme (FP) or Teacher Training Programme (TTP).
If you are interested in becoming a resident we suggest you stay for a working visit first.
