Information Section:

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- this 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 are 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.
