Tashirat is an Ashram and Yoga Learning Center set on 42 acres of beautiful mountainside fields and wooded areas. Tashirat has a “green”, high quality, family-style orphanage as well as a new community school for impoverished children. We are working to become completely self-sufficient and we would love your help!
The Tashirat Volunteer Program offers spiritual aspirants the opportunity to live in the beautiful Tashirat Ashram setting, as well as receive classes and guidance in exchange for service work. Volunteers serve six hours a day, six days a week. Our volunteer program is ideal of service oriented individuals seeking strength, clarity and inspiration on their chosen path. Volunteers who take full advantage of the opportunities offered in Tashirat are able to deepen their practice and enter an intensive experience that can be quite life transforming.
Currently we are giving our organic farming a big push in our home gardens and green house. May - July 2010 we will need help with our reforestation project, planting 1 - 2,000 trees. There are many areas of service in Tashirat – childcare, tutoring (if fluent in Spanish), workshops and sports with the children of the Tashirat Orphanage or Ixaya School, general maintenance, cleaning and cultivation. Experience in the above areas is preferred, but as long as you are an exceptionally willing and positive worker we can use your help! Please let us know if you have any special talents or skills that you would like to share.
We offer access to our extensive English library, free Yoga classes five days a week and additional guidance in Nutrition, Yoga, Meditation, and the Chakra Life Lessons through written communication with Tashirat teachers.
We ask that all WWOOFers commit to at least a one month stay but we prefer longer stays. We need flexible volunteers that are willing to help in any area needed since there are times when ther is no cultivation work. Please only apply if you are an enthusiastic, positive, independent volunteer with great work ethic and energy!
If you enjoy nature, organic cultivation, children, Yoga and healthy living, you will enjoy Tashirat. We look forward to meeting you!
