The Experience

We are a small meditation and retreat center located near Hamburg, Germany. The center is providing an environment to meditate, go inwards, calm down, and reconnect with oneself. It is a place of stillness and peace, and perfectly suited for experienced meditators who might enjoy the natural surrounding. If you would like to learn how to operate a retreat center we can teach you, during your stay of 1-6 months with us.

Life at Little Paradise is very simple. It really helped to calm my mind and find stillness. The chores are very simple and fun. The days passed by fast and the surrounding nature is beautiful. I had a great time biking and swimming in the lakes on my free time. I came in contact with so many beautiful souls and it’s an experience I will always cherish. Eternally grateful for the love, consideration, and accommodation that I received here. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

This was my first volunteering experience and it was incredible! Maria and Antje have created a wonderful community and space where you can truly relax and get in touch with nature. The nearby area is also great with beautiful forests and lakes, or cities if you're looking to explore that instead. The work (gardening) sometimes got a little physically demanding but it was always fulfilling and satisfying with the hours being exactly what was promised. I recommend Little Paradise to anyone looking for the perfect place to look inward or relax.

It is hard to write a review about something that can't really be put in words - this experience will stay with me forever. Learned a lot about myself and others during my 2 weeks with Maria and Antje (and their cats of course :)) If you come with an open heart, this place will do wonders. I will definitely return. Regarding the practical things - the work was very easy and is not really work if you feel like you are part of a home.

Volunteering in Little Paradise was one of the best choices I've made recently. Initially I intended to explore Hamburg and its surroundings, but ended up staying in this beautiful home filled with spirituality and openness to all cultures and religions with the beautiful Maria and Anjche. They are very nice and explain the tasks that need to be done very smoothly. I can only be grateful for all the beautiful times I had with myself and them there. Thank you very much and I look forward to coming again❤️❤️❤️
