Voluntary Workers

In addition to our hired employees, Kamalashila and its work is supported through the selfless and deep commitment of a large number of voluntary workers. At the top of the list (although there are many others) are Hannelore and Hans, Nici, Nicole, Rolf, Thomas, Cordula, Theresa, Anja, and our numerous volunteers.

All of you deserve our deep respect, recognition, and appreciation!

Perhaps you too are interested in supporting us as a volunteer? Information on the various volunteer possibilities is available here.

Management Board of Karma Kagyu Gemeinschaft Deutschland e.V.

In addition to the work of the employees of Kamalashila Institute, the honorary Management Board of Karma Kagyu Gemeinschaft Deutschland e.V. (which Kamalashila Institute is a part of) also lends an active hand in many areas.
