** We are not yet ready to start building our volunteer teams for our 2019 events, but if you would like to make a submission for Costa Rica (March 2019) then we will keep your submission on file until the time is right.
Thank you for your wish to support our vision! We are deeply moved that our gathering has called forth your soul to be in service to our growing movement. We bow to you!
In a little over 4 years, Sound & Silence has grown to become one of the most unique and authentic gatherings in the world. There are many reasons for the success of this project, but we believe that the beauty lies in the intimacy and resonance we share together. At these small gatherings (less than 400 people), both artist and audience participate in this magical transformational journey together, where kindness, creativity and authenticity allow us to move through one ecstatic moment after another.
And none of this would be possible without YOU!
However, before we can make this vision work, we all need to enter into an agreement field together. So Before you submit your volunteer application, we feel that there are some things that you should know in advance:
Sound & Silence is about deep connection, collaboration, support and intimacy. This "being together throughout" is what facilitates new friendships and spontaneous creations which lead to unforgettable moments during the week. So we ask our volunteers to be with us starting one day before and staying until one day after the gathering ends, and to be fully present throughout our 7 days together.
Also, we ask that our volunteers work at least 4, but possibly even 5 hours each day. Our program starts early and ends late, so we will do the work in shifts. With few exceptions, most of the work is light and easy and will happen between events, and while some of the work will happen during events, we will do our best to create rotations so that you will not miss any events that your heart is set on.
Furthermore, for the work you do, you will receive a free ticket for the 7 days that you volunteer for. However, we will not provide food or accommodation. We will, however, support you in finding low cost housing for your stay, and we always attempt to find a catered option for reduced price meals.
Please know that volunteer service is generally reserved for those who are in financial difficulty or on a tight budget. So if you are in a state of financial abundance, please buy a ticket and leave the volunteering for those who need it most.

A Final Note from Sound & Silence Creator, Sarvaan: "Sound & Silence is and always will be an intimate, mindful and artistic gathering, rooted in the heart and with the spirit of togetherness, collaboration and celebration. There is a shared resonance between all of us in attendance, a kindness and joy which spreads from smiling face to smiling face."
Many thanks and much love from our organization team to you. Your generosity of spirit helps our gatherings to climb to new heights and fill the world with peace and Joy! We thank you! <3
