VOLUNTEERING

Amoraleza is a strictly vegetarian (no meat or fish) community, free from alcohol and drugs. Before coming to join us, please read and agree to the community rules.

Mission of our Volunteer Program:

The Mission of our Volunteer Program is to provide a mutually beneficial space for personal development, learning and spiritual evolution. It is a chance to connect more deeply with Nature, learn about permaculture, nutrition and neo-shamanism and experience the creation of community. We offer an opportunity for others to become involved in our project and get hands on experience in low-impact, natural living.

 

As we are working towards creating a more sustainable, long-term community, we rely on volunteers to help keep the project moving forward and are grateful for the passion, devotion, skills and experience each volunteer brings with him/her.

 

We are looking for dynamic, motivated people who share our passion for health, ecology and spirituality and would like to help with the creation of a sustainable model of living, as close as possible to Nature. Skills are an asset, but depending on the projects we are working on, not necessary.

What is expected of volunteers?:

  • Put all tools back to where they belong each day

 

Benefits of volunteering:

  • A unique community learning experience

  • Disconnect from fast-paced city life

  • Reconnect with Nature.

  • Learn about health and nutrition

  • Discover and reap the benefits of eating a simple, mostly organic, high-vibration, high-raw diet.

  • Live in an environment that supports the releasing of negative patterns and addictions.

  • Learn about shamanism and power plants

 

General Information:

  • The type and schedule of the work is defined by the organisers and though we try to accommodate everyone's needs, it is not always possible to take into account individual preferences.

  • Volunteers are welcome to use most facilities, with the exception of the stone house, rental accommodation and personal spaces of other community members.

  • Volunteers are asked not to remove anything from rental accommodation spaces, big yurt or communal spaces for personal use, without checking with Veronika.

  • When we have a large group of people on the land, we take responsibility for preparing all meals. If we are only a small group of people, volunteers may be responsible for preparing their own breakfast and dinner and all meals on days off with the ingredients provided, as well as leaving the kitchen clean.

  • We cannot accommodate special diets, so anyone wishing to follow a special diet (as long as it complies with the community rules) is responsible for providing all their own food at their own expense.

  • We have a sharing circle and organisation meeting at 9:15am every morning.

  • Short and medium term volunteers who would like to undertake a period of cleansing or fasting that may hinder their ability to fulfill the agreed work contribution will be asked to pay an extra contribution during the days they are unavailable. This must be agreed upon with organisers to ensure it does not disturb the general organisation.

  • We encourage all people staying with us to limit their Internet and mobile phone time and ask that electronic devices are not used in communal areas or during social gatherings.

 

Financial Contribution:

Until we reach a point of sustainability, we can only accept volunteers who can provide a financial contribution to the project. This contribution partially covers food expenses.
