Karmic Yogi Volunteer Program

Our Karmic Yogi Volunteers are the lifeblood of the farm. They help keep things running smoothly, and help the community grow and thrive in ease and flow. They are critical to helping out with projects around the farm, holding space for and assisting our beloved guests, and contributing to the overall energy of the community.

We are off grid and solar powered, and we grow lots of our own food. To keep the farm and the program flowing, our volunteers also contribute a financial donation to be a part of the community. We provide daily yoga and meditation, three epic vegan meals a day (homegrown and organic wherever possible), unlimited herbal teas, an abundance of workshops and ceremonies including temezcal, cacao medicine, sound healings, and of course accommodations.

The first month of volunteering is a contribution of $500 (USD), the second month is $250, and the third month, as a gesture of appreciation for your time and energy, is free.

Things to Consider

We work very hard to maintain a healthy and sustainable environment for our community and guests and expect the same from you throughout your time here.

The core of the farm operates from a high vibration and we ask that you serve the farm with love and an open heart.

We ask for dynamic people that are independent enough to progress with tasks with limited guidance from your tribal leader.

At the same time we need team players that are willing to contribute or help with tasks not related to your project.

We are a peaceful community with a no drug and alcohol policy.

Before applying please consider the following before applying and if they fit you, we ask you to find a better suitable experience than we can offer you:

  • If you have affairs that require you to be routinely distracted from your learning experience.
  • If you have an addiction to the internet/phone.
  • If you are ill prepared to live in a natural environment with bugs and spiders.
  • If you lack the skills required to self-motivate yourself.

Volunteer Application

We have many people who apply to be a volunteer in our program, and only a limited amount of space available. For this reason, it is important for us to ensure that all people we accept for our volunteer program is the right fit for our community and will be a good contribution to our team. In order to ensure the farm functions at it's optimal level, we would like to get to know you a bit more. Please take your time and answer our short questionnaire by copying and pasting the below questions (and your answers) into the contact form below. Please answer in as much detail as you can.
