The establishing and running of a monastery is very much a group effort. Many skills and resources are needed. Below are some ideas of ways to contribute your time and skills.
There is a frequent need for trips from the monastery to the local towns Askim, Sarpsborg and Fredrikstad, as well as occasional trips to the airport. Offering a ride allows the driver to have more contact with the monks as well as learn more about Buddhist practice and the monastic form. Please contact us if you are interested in offering a ride to a monk.
The running of the monastery requires many skills such as: carpentry, chainsawing, electrical, plumbing, accounting, translation, editing, web design, etc. Please contact us if you would like to make a general offer to help with your special skill or if you have an idea for a special project you would like to do.
