Song of the Morning is a very special place that recently celebrated its 50th anniversary as a haven of peace and a center of spiritual community. Located alongside the Pigeon River in the beautiful North Woods of Michigan, and steeped in a long tradition of authentic yogic teachings, Song of the Morning can be a dream come true for the right soul wishing to live a simple, natural, and spiritually centered life of meaningful service.
The resident cook/kitchen manager at Song of the Morning has the beautiful charge of preparing delicious and nutritious vegetarian meals and overseeing our kitchen as we feed guests, community members, and fellow staff and work exchange volunteers. Duties include cooking vegetarian meals, dishwashing, maintenance and upkeep of the kitchen, meal planning, grocery shopping, and oversight of all aspects of kitchen operations.
The ritual of cooking, blessing the food, and then eating together are central components in our mission of feeding hungry souls, and hungry mouths. If you love to cook nourishing meals and are hungry for spiritual nourishment yourself; if you are willing and able to give yourself fully to this non-traditional lifestyle of community, spirit, nature, and service then we hope you will apply at songofthemorning.org/retreat-kitchen-manager.
In exchange for your service, you will be modestly paid, but amply rewarded with a spiritually rich and fulfilling life. Living and serving at Song of the Morning means a community-centered life surrounded by nature, alongside a beautiful river, with meditation and devotion at the heart of it all. Our aim is to live by the highest ideals of ancient and authentic Yoga, which for thousands of years has shown us the way towards balancing heart, mind, body, and spirit. Song of the Morning is a spiritualized environment where for 50 years folks have been meditating, singing, praying, and gathering for spiritual refreshment and relaxation - and that spiritually supportive environment is felt by all who come. We are a conscious community comprised of staff, volunteers, and devotees living on-site or nearby, and we welcome in guests on retreat, meaning the daily opportunities for connection are many and varied, including interesting conversations with fellow spiritually-minded individuals, group dinners, community potlucks, book clubs, and quiet time to connect with yourself in nature or during nightly meditations and Sunday services.
This is a live-work position away from the hustle and bustle of the city, appropriate for any sincere heart willing to serve and wishing to grow. Pay starts at minimum wage, with room and board deducted from your paycheck, meaning the take-home stipend at the end of the month is relatively modest. However, if you desire to live simply you can find that all of your needs are met - with cozy accommodations and delicious vegetarian food provided. The right souls whose values are aligned will find that you are taken care of in mind, body, and soul.
