Description: Volunteer opportunities at the Dharmalaya Institute, open to both residential and non-residential participants (though, during the monsoon, we strongly recommend staying on the Dharmalaya campus). During this period, volunteers have the opportunity to offer service for a great cause while learning the arts and methods of sustainable living in the Himalayas by doing physical work related to earthen building, organic gardening, and more.
Dharmalaya Institute is a place to practice simple, clean, compassionate living while doing service work as karma yoga in service toward a long-term vision for rural sustainability and holistic education.
