VOLUNTEERING

Amoraleza is a strictly vegetarian (no meat or fish) community, free from alcohol and drugs. Before applying 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 a community dynamic. 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.

Amoraleza is a strictly vegetarian (no meat or fish) community, free from alcohol and drugs. Due to the nature of the work we do, we only welcome volunteers who have a high level of commitment to a healthy and conscious lifestyle and who are happy to follow the community's dietary guidelines.

General Information:
  • The type and schedule of the work is defined by the organizers.

  • 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, private or communal spaces for personal use. If you need something please ask the volunteer coordinator.

  • 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 meals, 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.

  • Volunteers who would like to undertake a period of cleansing or fasting that may hinder their ability to fulfil the agreed work contribution will be asked to pay an extra contribution during the days they are unavailable. This must be agreed upon with organizers to ensure it does not disturb the general organization.

  • 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.

 

Daily Rhythm:

The daily rhythm depends on the season, projects and events we are holding. As we follow the rhythm of the sun and the seasons, our daily rhythm changes throughout the year and can vary due to certain project or event needs.  The number of help hours and starting and ending times will vary depending on the projects we are working on.

 

​​Volunteer Review:

 

After two weeks, we have a volunteer review to assure that the relationship is mutually beneficial. Volunteers may be asked to leave if they do not fulfil their agreements, share the community values, follow rules or otherwise hinder the cohesiveness of the group.
