Guest Season Volunteer



Our Summer Volunteer Program runs from mid-May until the end of September. Throughout the Summer we will open our facilities to welcome external retreat leaders and their groups. The volunteer program offers room and board in exchange for helping with our Summer Guest Season. Volunteers join the daily life of the monks and residents. At the heart of each day and our life together is zazen, still seated meditation. When we have no Guests, we hold our own practice events, which may include Zazenkai (extended sittings) or Practice Week. There are also Dharma Talks and Discussions throughout the summer. These events are open to all volunteers.
