Karma yoga is the offering of actions (work) for the benefit of others. This is an important part of the retreat practice and through it we learn how to bring mindful awareness into the activities of daily life. Work meditation also supports the retreat community, helps make the retreat more affordable for everyone and assures the smooth running of the teachings. Often meditators report important insights that surprise them as they wash pots or wipe table tops in a mindful way. Every participant is asked to offer one hour of Karma yoga each day. Below are the areas of karma yoga available. Please select 3 areas, in order of preference, where you would like to offer service. We will do our best to schedule according to what is available.
