Have you ever experienced both living and working in the same place, while being supported by a shared vision and a set of core values?
The size of the Ängsbacka Working Community changes dynamically with the seasons and the needs of our courses, festivals, and retreats. At times we need quite a few extra volunteers to serve a specific course or project, at times we scale down and only have space for the most essential roles. If you are curious to experience Ängsbacka also outside the main festival season, this is a beautiful opportunity! You can apply for a spot on the general volunteer program or as a Team leader / Skilled volunteer throughout the year. Welcome to also express a more general interest in joining the Working Community, even far in advance.
The foundation of our Working Community; the all-year-round ‘Core Circle’, consists of about 20 or so long-term volunteers and a few employees who have made a strong commitment and are dedicated to the practice of living and working together. Most of the working community members, including the ‘Core Circle’, stay on-site, and some live in the nearby village – all of us united in service to Ängsbacka.
We seek to grow as human beings, we support each other and live purposefully by holding a nurturing space for Ängsbacka’s guests and participants.
Depending on each person’s skills, availability, and Ängsbacka’s needs; a volunteer may end up staying for a week, a couple of months, or much longer. Whatever previous experiences of ‘community-living’ a person has – they are bound to learn a lot about themselves, as we explore daily life while being centered in selfless service, presence, self-awareness & self-responsibility, relating from the heart, gratitude and celebration.
If you are open to extending your comfort zone – welcome to take this golden opportunity for personal transformation, practice living the vision of Ängsbacka, and get the chance to develop beautiful friendships along the way!
