I want to get involved
The Dharma Centre is a community run centre and retreatants who come to the Dharma Centre are asked to help out with only one hour of service each day during their time here. In order to keep retreat fees down, the Centre maintains a very minimal staff. As such, the service that retreatants perform while here greatly contributes to the smooth and effective functioning of the Dharma Centre.
In most cases, service involves cleaning up after meals or cleaning up common spaces around the property. These tasks are assigned by the Administrator or course coordinator and posted on a schedule in our Main House foyer. However, we ask that retreatants adopt a ‘leave no trace’ practice while they are here and be mindful of tidying up after themselves and wherever they see an opportunity to improve upon the cleanliness of a space.
Our Server-Meditator program is offered to those wishing to explore the integration of their Dharma practice into the activities of daily life while living and working in a meditation/study environment. As the Dharma Centre maintains a very minimal staff, server-meditators are an indispensable component in the smooth functioning of the Dharma Centre. For more information click here.
If you cannot volunteer on site, please consider volunteering your time either by getting involved in one of our committees such as marketing, programming, property fundraising, and more.
The Dharma Centre often has special projects such as work weekends, sign making, gardening, or the renovation of a particular building. Also if you are familiar with the property and have an idea for a project that you are willing to finance and carry out from start to finish, please let us know. You could participate as an individual or as part of a small group.
Please contact the Administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on any of the above options.
