Attention Ceramic Artists!

Embark on a Unique Artistic Odyssey:

Craft 186 Ancient Stupas

Are you driven by the creation of exquisite, meaningful art?

We invite skilled ceramic artists to partake in a remarkable endeavor – the completion of over 186 ancient stupas, to surround one of the world’s most beautiful living mandalas. This large-scale project not only promises to be personally rewarding but also allows you to channel your artistic finesse into creating something extraordinary and historic.


Encompassing a comprehensive work-study program, your journey with us will include the following:

– Broad instruction in Buddhist art and architecture
– Comfortable accommodation and nutritious meals
– A monthly stipend of $200

Work hours, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Saturdays with a Purpose:

Beyond your contribution to making the stupas, your Saturdays will involve a harmonious blend of responsibilities, from lending a hand in the kitchen to nurturing our vibrant gardens and cherished animals. Find fulfillment in diverse tasks that nourish both the environment and the soul.

Mark your calendar for the program’s duration, scheduled from March to November 2024.
