The Work-Exchange program

The Work Exchange Program (WE) 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 substantial part of the costs through working.

The Work Exchange has been successfully active for 4 years, continually 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. Equally, joining the work exchange program is a commitment to the community.

PachaMama has the intention to hold the 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 the gatherings.

Work will be designated according to each ones interest, skills and community needs.
