Volunteer Enrichment Program
A Community Living Experience
The Volunteer Enrichment Program combines personal growth, work as play, and community living in a 30-day process of self-discovery. Using meditation as a base, we will learn to enjoy work, rather than just focusing on the results. With awareness of our actions and playfulness, work not only becomes pleasure, but also a tool for grounding and relating. Community acts like a mirror to look within and presents the challenge for us to deepen our processes.
Created as an eco-village on the lush green outskirts of New Delhi, Zorba the Buddha offers a host of workshops, festivals, events, and performances, which give us a chance to explore, express and enrich our being. The common language here is English.
This program is created for anyone who wants to:
Seek an uplifting experience
Live in a loving, spiritual community
Bring more consciousness to one’s lives
Respect one’s own uniqueness and of others
Develop friendships with like-minded individuals
Share our passion to help people find happiness
