Being of service is a practice in and of itself.

You can offer to help weekly, monthly, quarterly or now-and-then for special projects. Some jobs not listed below can be done from your home. Many involve good stewardship of our facility and grounds or help with fundraising and special events.

Time for meditation is always available as an optional part of your volunteer time. Almost all retreats entail some aspect of mindful service work as part of the practice of Sangha – community, one of the Three Treasures.
