Work Exchange Program

Work Exchange Program

The Work Exchange Program is an opportunity to experience PachaMama and become an integral part of the community through service. It allows the participants of the program to cover a workexchange3substantial part of their expenses through work while still keeping transformation as their main focus.

The Work Exchange Program is continuously evolving; allowing people to melt into the ways of PachaMama and become a part of the tribe. The contribution of each person who is welcomed into the program is honored. Joining the work exchange program is a commitment to the community.

Work-exchangers in PachaMama enjoy a quality lifestyle with enough time for themselves as well as organic food and a good balance between work, meditation and personal growth.  Aside from the practical duties, there are opportunities to go deeper into learning hands-on skills within the various branches of work, to enjoy the social intimacy of the work exchange circle, and be part of PachaMama through workshops, events and gatherings.
