Postponed: Volunteer Day at Land of Shambhala
Due to stage three COVID-19 restrictions enforced for Victoria, we will be postponing our volunteer days until restrictions are lifted. Stay tuned for further updates shortly,
Come and volunteer at our new retreat centre property – Land of Shambhala. We really need a few extra pairs of helping hands.
We invite volunteers to the Land of Shambhala to assist in marking out the farm area . We will be marking out the area for the greenhouses for seedling production, Medicine Buddha mandala and healing deity food forest.
This event is suitable for children.
To Volunteer please rsvp to – firstname.lastname@example.org
Things to Know
Follow your GPS. The road is not well marked. There is a sign that says 837.
For those allergic to dogs, there are two friendly dogs on the property that will mostly play with each other or swim in mud.
We have a port-o-potty but not fancy bathrooms.
There is a small work shed where we can all enjoy lunch together. It is an outdoor volunteer activity. Lunch will be provided.
Practice Generosity Through Buddhist Offerings
To make merit for the benefit of all beings and create the causes and conditions for our project to be a success, we encourage you to bring incense, candles, gemstones, crystals, flowers, perfume, prayer flags or water to offer on the property. There is a shrine house as well as areas throughout Malaya Grove farm such as in the Medicine Buddha herb garden mandala and the food forest that we will become a buddha field filled with healing deities of wisdom traditions from around the world. Offer to the deities there to help create the causes for their statues to manifest.
