The Sanctuary is a special plant-based vegan community and retreat center for spirituality and health. We are located in Puerto Escondido, Mexico.
The community has been built and supported by volunteers. We've served hundreds of guests from all over the world who were seeking spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical healing.
Volunteering at The Sanctuary is a unique experience you won't get anywhere else. It's a place for true healing, and not so much a place to party and be wild. Most of the volunteers we host tend to describe themselves as old and mature souls -- people who are interested in what lies beyond having fun, making money, and consuming pleasurable things. Of course, all these things are important, but they are not the priorities at The Sanctuary.
Depending on our volunteers' desires and predispositions, they may be asked to help in the kitchen, garden, housekeeping, marketing, administrative, maintenance, woodworking, and other departments. Also, our volunteers who have experience in yoga and/or meditation and/or therapies may be asked to contribute in other ways such as leading classes and offering their talents.
Volunteering at The Sanctuary is a time to put spiritual practice into daily life. It's a place to be happy and healthy surrounded by others who want the same. Although there will be ups and down during your stay here, we guarantee it will be one of the best experiences of your life!
