I want to redefine hospitality (1) hospitality!

This position is on-site only

A large part of the work that is done, and the income that is earned at Gaia and Tranqvillium come from our amazing volunteers and our seminar and other guests.

It is very important that when our volunteers arrive they have a host who will orient them, and to whom they can turn to with all their questions and problems. You will have to make sure that their stay is pleasant and they leave with fond memories and will spread good words about us As with all positions at Tranqvillium, you will not be stuck with just this one role.
