Odiyan is a dynamic community of 30 to 40 volunteers who range in age, background, nationalities and commitments. The residents work in service of peace and harmony for all life, through the creation, preservation, and activation of ancient wisdom symbols and teachings.
Our lifestyle is active; both physically and mentally strenuous. It includes a diet of mostly organic vegetarian food, hard work, and cultivating beauty within the Odiyan mandala – and within ourselves.
NEW Work-Study in Action resident volunteer program for 2024! Join our unique Buddhist sacred art projects while engaging Buddhist study and classes, meditation instruction, mindful cooking and more.
Our work is much more than “just work”. We follow guidance from our cornerstone text : Skilfull Means. Our work not only supports Odiyan’s mission, it produces beautiful inner results. This is a job that cultivates inner growth of our potential as we engage the workplace daily.
Odiyan has its foundations in Tibetan Buddhism, however, no religious affiliation is required.
