It is a wonderful opportunity to spend time together with monastic and lay practitioners as we, in a concrete way, offer our time and energy to some needed areas within this amazing valley.
We ask for your help in our mindful work on Saturday May 11, 2013.
If you have time and energy on a regular basis and want to help care for Deer Park, land and facility, please fill out our volunteer sign-up and our Friends of Deer Park volunteer coordinator Linda will contact you to see how you can get involved. Thank you for your support!
Please bring work gloves, wear casual clothing, and be prepared to work outside.
We will begin gathering at 8:45am outside the Ocean of Peace Hall to sing some songs and divide into groups to start our joyful service. There will be a break and snacks around 11am. At 12:30pm we will enjoy a mindful picnic meal together. In the afternoon at 3pm there will be a DVD Dharma Talk by our teacher if you would like to stay behind to listen.

Our work becomes joyful service of the heart as we allow ourselves to work wholeheartedly, in harmony and not in a rush. You can read some more about the practice of working meditation on our website.
