Working Visits

enjoy making a difference

A great way to experience life at Madhyamaka KMC is to come on a working visit.

In exchange for 40 hours work, you receive: seven days free dormitory accommodation, three vegetarian meals a day, full use of all the centre’s facilities and free attendance at meditation classes during your stay. It is also a unique opportunity to meet and work alongside members of the residential community and to find out more about the Buddhist way of life.

To request an application form email:

Please arrive for your working visit on the Sunday evening, arrange to depart the following Sunday evening, and bring a sleeping bag and towel.
