The Spirit of Volunteerism is the central feature of our philosophy: those who come to the Retreat Center are not merely visitors, but friends, associates and fellow-seekers who contribute to the Hollow's health, well-being, and spiritual atmosphere. In this spirit, some after-meal work activities called Karma Yoga are shared among all workshop participants.
Work Scholarships: A limited number of half-work scholarships are available. Individuals may be able to cover half of their room and board by helping in the kichen, garden, housekeeping office, or maintenance areas during the weekend. Note this usually means coming a day early or staying an extra day since programs are intensive.
Midweek Retreats: Although most of our programs are scheduled for weekends, the retreat center is open during the week as well. If you are looking for a truly peaceful retreat as a time of reflection and relaxation, or to pursue a creative project, Pumpkin Hollow's natural rhythms and tranquility may be what you seek.
Residency: If your experience at Pumpkin Hollow suggests that you pursue a deeper, more intensive commitment to our community's ideals, you may apply for a summer residency (a period of one week to three months). At different times positions open in all areas of the Hollow: kitchen, maintenance, garden and grounds, office, and housekeeping. We are looking for people who are interested in serving in a community dedicated to a theosophical way of life -- Study, Service, and Meditation -- and sharing this with our larger Pumpkin Hollow community. The cooperative spirit and talents of the residents are essential to make the Pumpkin Hollow ideal a reality. The benefits are inviting: 134 acres of natural beauty, daily meditation practice and study group, spiritual growth through service, friendship, room, board, and living expenses. Please contact us for more information.
