on duty / daily responsibility

As the center is run completely on voluntary work and we all have a “day” job, we divide the center duties i.e. each one of us takes responsibility for daily center activities once a week (daily “on duty”). 

We encourage and gladly accept support from all our friends, whether it is for full or half day duties. As required, we train anyone who is interested based on their preference and talent, for example, responding to telephone calls, welcoming new arrivals, explaining our Retreat Center rules, supervising kitchen activities and organizing helping hands for doing the dishes and cleaning the kitchen after cooking. 

Many friends from Bern, Lucerne, Zurich or other parts of the country currently come to support us on their day-off.
