How to Support Deer Park


Your Practice:

The most important thing you can do for Deer Park is to be diligent about your own practice. Deer Park depends on practitioners living mindfully and transforming their compost into flowers. You can also take opportunities to practice with and offer your presence to others by joining a local sangha, attending retreats at Deer Park, and joining us on a regular Day of Mindfulness. Our society and our monastery will benefit from the fruits of your practice—now and in the future. Remember to enjoy your mindful breath, your peaceful step.


Be a Volunteer with Friends of Deer Park

If you are looking for deeper involvement with the community and with the care and maintenance of the monastery, we have several Friends of Deer Park families that you can join. There are many opportunities for you to get involved. To sign up, you can submit an online application and our volunteer coordinator will contact you for more information about your interests and skills.


Come to a Four-Fold Sangha Work Day

We can always use extra hands at our 4-fold sangha work days. These work days provide the community an opportunity to spend a Saturday morning working joyfully and harmoniously on a project at Deer Park that needs attention. See the upcoming schedule.


Donate to Deer Park

All of the maintenance and improvements for the monastery come from the Deer Park General Fund. If you would like to help restore and refresh Deer Park, you can offer dana (donations) in any amount here: general donations.
