We deeply believe in service to one’s spiritual community.
We hold a tradition of joyful and fulfilling service in our spiritual community – if it’s not enjoyable on some level, it’s not service, it’s servitude. We have a wide variety of service teams which offer an almost unlimited number of ways to serve the community we value. We invite you to explore what delights you, what you find fun, and to connect with others while doing so. Making new friends through this sacred service is a joyous part of our spirituality. We believe service should lighten your heart and lift your spirit.
