We Warmly Welcome Everyone ! Inclusivity at Gaia House
Gaia House warmly welcomes all people of every age, ethnicity, cultural heritage and religious background, socio-economic group, ability, sexual orientation, and gender identity. We are committed to promoting inclusion and diversity both in terms of who comes on retreat here but also who works here. We include an anonymous demographic questionnaire for you to complete with your application, but this will not form part of your application. The information collected will form a confidential statistical record which will not be used for any purpose other than to support the Trust’s actions with regard to equality of opportunity and inclusion.
Salaries at Gaia House
To remain accessible to all, Gaia House is committed to keeping retreat fees as low as possible and offering financial assistance to those that need it. Our salary budget ensures that no individual role is paid more than double any other role in the organisation for the same hours. We also ensure that all roles are paid more than the national living wage as directed by The Joseph Rowntree foundation and competitive but affordable to Gaia House.
The benefits of working for Gaia House go far beyond financial reward. Our working community is supported to work in an amazing environment within a service community bound by common ethics and principles. We are supported in our Dharma practice with one-to-one teacher guidance, meditation and practice discussions, free time to sit on retreat, and flexible working arrangements that allow for a healthy work-life balance. Working this way has allowed us to balance keeping retreat prices as low as possible, while at the same time attracting skilled staff with wages that do not exploit their devotion to our work.
