Just received this from Bodhi Tree (which is the home of Buddhanet.net
We hope this email finds you well and happy.
We appreciate your participation, if you made it to the dedication ceremony of Bodhi Tree as a Satipatthana Vipassana Retreat Centre on the 15th of December, 2009 by the Venerable Sayadaw U Janaka, a Meditation Master from Burma and the teacher of Venerable Pannyavaro. We understand if you wanted to join, but could not make it.
If you, or a friend of yours, are interested in helping Bodhi Tree in a non-financial way, we can provide accommodation and food, with a small amount for basic expenses like petrol. We need help in these areas: bush regeneration, cooking/shopping, admin work, website maintenance, small motor maintenance, odd jobs and last but not least - cleaning. If you can help with any of these jobs, then it would lessen the workload of the 3 resident monks who work 24/7 to keep Bodhi Tree going, thanks We would appreciate some short term help [e.g. for specific retreats], but it is especially long term help that we seek.
Please let us know if Bodhi Tree were listed with Centrelink as a volunteer organisation, so 15 hours of your volunteer work here would fulfil the conditions for Centrelink benefit, if that would enable you to be a live-in volunteer and how long you might like to do that.
Please go to: http://www.buddhanet.net/bodhi-tree/schedule.html for details of our weekly Wednesday evening sit and the up-coming retreats.
Kind regards and season's greetings to you all.
