As a volunteer at Chisholme you are appreciated for who you are, not only for what you do.


Opportunities to volunteer vary depending on the time of year and current programme. Activities are many and diverse: you might be asked to help in the organic garden, work in the woodland, split and stack timber for our wood boiler, help prepare rooms for new guests, pick wild raspberries, prepare food in the kitchen and much more.

As a volunteer you are also invited to participate in meditation, study of wisdom texts and further approaches to self-knowledge. Most importantly, you will be living and working in a place that supports the discovery of your own potential. Chisholme is a school with the guiding principle of the unity of all being. Once glimpsed, this is a vision – or mystery – that can transform our understanding of ourselves and the world.

Financial contributions:
We may ask for a small contribution towards the basic cost of your stay.
Please contact us to discuss details. Write to secretary@chisholme.org
