Location: Nanaimo, BC. Room and board included.

Are you looking for a change of pace? Wanting to contribute your skills and talents to a charitable organisation that offers a destination for people on their spiritual path? Consider this work-stay residency position as a part of the dynamic team at Bethlehem.

The Organisation

Bethlehem Centre Society offers a sacred gathering place for groups and individuals. Offering programs that help people evolve in ways that expand consciousness and our connectedness to each other, our communities and our planet.

We value traditional welcoming hospitality with simple, ‘cottage at the lake’ style accommodations and nourishing food for retreaters who come to stay. Our green initiatives and on-going care and attention for the lakefront property are evident in our day to day work.

We take pride in being an inclusive employer that embraces and honours the uniqueness, inherent value of each human being.

The Position

Our work-stay residents are a bridge between staff and guests. While there is a rhythm to the day, no two days are the same and are often filled with a variety of tasks. We are looking for individuals who are adaptable, easy going and strong communicators with a real eye for what needs to be done. Able to work alone and with others. Responsibilities range from kitchen to yard and everything in between.

This live in position offers room and board in exchange for thirty hours of work 5 days per week. We ask for a minimum four month commitment.

The Location

Nestled in the shadows of Mt Benson, on beautiful Westwood Lake, Vancouver Island there are thirty-seven guest rooms and a variety of meeting rooms, including a lakefront chapel. The property sits on several acres of forest and hosts a labyrinth, meditation trails and reflective pond.

The 5.51 kilometer trail around Westwood lake is ideal for walkers, runners and bikers, with two beaches for summer swimming, kayak, boats and paddle boards.There are shorter loops available towards the south end of the trail.
