The Chaikuni Center
Where work exchange guests and interns stay who are focused on Permaculture and other associated Temple projects.
This center hosts our work-exchange participants and some Temple staff. The center is hexagonal and all buildings are built symmetrically and face a large beautiful garden. The Chaikuni Center is a testing ground where we apply many permaculture practices and small projects prior to introducing them to other areas of Temple grounds, such as rainwater harvesting, new greywater systems, new staple-food plants, mulching and soil-improvement techniques, and companion plantings.
There are three accommodation buildings that house a total of 15 people, a kitchen, toilets, showers and sinks with running water, a casa grande, and a maloka. The casa grande contains a dining area, ping-pong table, movie corner, and a lounge corner with benches. The Chaikuni maloka is situated 100 meters away from the center and serves as a space for ceremonies as well as the alternative healing classes offered in our Deep Immersion retreats.
