Volunteering in the lake village is an exchange between you and the association "Présence à soi et au monde". It is the pleasure of working together for the same purpose, of sharing common values, of putting oneself at the service of Nature and the Mystery. You have two choices of accommodation, either in camping or in rooms of 2 or 3. Please specify your choice when you register. If you are camping please bring your own equipment. If you are in a room we provide you with sheets and blankets, however, please bring your own towels. The needs are often in the kitchen but it can also be in the garden, outdoors or for maintenance or work on buildings. It also depends on the circumstances and skills of each individual. We ask for 4 to 6 hours of volunteer work per day depending on your pace, your needs and the needs of the centre.
Depending on the season, it is possible to participate in discovery workshops, or in activities offered by the residents of the lake village such as Yoga, drumming, singing...
Located on 6 hectares of forest and meadows, the village of the lake benefits from an exceptional setting in a large natural setting, Lake Devesset is 4 minutes from the centre through the forest.
We want to make volunteering accessible to all. Thus we offer a free and conscious participation for the board and lodging (those who cannot contribute financially are also welcome).
Here are some examples of periods during which internships and retreats are in full swing on the site:
- Weekends and extended weekends + qqs weeks from late April to early July,
- Every week from the beginning of July to the end of August,
- Weekends + a few weeks from early September to early November.

We look forward to hearing from you.
