Experience life in a spiritual community dedicated to serving others. Spend your days with like-minded workers while serving the Divine in a high vibrational and devotional environment. Work exchange is a fun and life changing experience. It is also hard work. If you’re looking for a retreat, work exchange probably isn't the experience for you. But if you like to work hard and want to help support the Ranch through service, it is a wonderfully rewarding experience.
Length of Service and Benefits
Work exchange arrangements can be as short as one day or as long as many months. Work exchangers work a minimum of six hours per day and often much more in support of staff members and their daily duties. In return work exchangers receive a small private room or campsite, gourmet vegetarian meals, and special benefits, including:
- Inner growth on the fast track
- Yoga Classes
- Meditation with like-minded seekers
- Unlimited opportunities to serve others
- 800 gorgeous acres of pristine forest right outside the door
You are invited to apply for a work exchange position if:
-You are a committed spiritual seeker willing to consider hard work an important part of your sadhana (spiritual discipline and practice) and you follow directions well;
-You are at least 16 years old and able to work a minimum of six hours per day;
-You want to attend our regular meditations, service, and group practices;
-You have the ability to live and work in close quarters in a communal environment.

Part-time Work exchange
Part-time work exchangers receive a discounted rate on lodging and/or meals, depending on the number of hours they work and the type of lodging desired. Maybe you can't put in a full day or maybe you chose not to so that you can enjoy nature or meditate more. Part-time work exchange maybe for you. (Determined on a case-by-case basis).
