I had an excellent time and would thoroughly recommend spending time here - everyone was very friendly, helpful and accomodating. I learnt many things and stayed longer than planned while having an overall wonderful time.

Thabarwa is a family home without blood ties but with a lot of love, well-being work and resilience. The exchange is about sharing and giving oneself. It's not a place to complete an assigned task and then lock yourself in the room. I spent a week sharing everything that was possible and I was filled with love and joy. I thank everyone at Thabarwa for opening the doors of their home and allowing me to give them a little bit of me. I recommend everyone to spend some time there and to be open to the experience.

Thabarwa is not just a meditation center but a family, our experience was outstanding. They welcome you and make you feel part of the team since you arrive. Unfortunately I was sick most of the time but Dony was an angel for me, she took me to the hospital and helped me with everything.
If you like nature, you are going to enjoy daily routine activities, the volunteering doesn't consist just in the tasks that they assign to you but in being part of the family and helping people in need, the purpose is to make them feel that they belong and to create a kind atmosphere.
Thanks you so muchhhh
