Applicants need to be male, reasonably fluent in English and comfortably familiar with Theravada Buddhist practice. Someone taking up this voluntary role would join in the monastic routine, keeping the 8 precepts, with 2 meals a day and the opportunity to participate in retreats and daily meditations. They would have accommodation in a single room. If you are interested, please contact us at or phone on +44 (0)1661 881 612 to arrange an initial meeting.
