Sangha Works

Be a part of the growing energy of our Sangha. Build connections by working together to create something beautiful and pull up those sleeves to make a real difference. Sangha Works is an opportunity to continue the flow of energy by putting care and love into the building for the year to come. We get those elbows out to maintain the building, improve the spaces and build an atmosphere for collective practice.

We expect to renovate the basement to create a second shrine room, do gardening, deep clean, throw out some old stuff, paint and undertake repairs. There will be be other tasks too – something for everyone’s ability. (Full list of tasks below!)

We start and end the days with a short sit together and a check-in. We will provide lunch. And at the end of the day we have a short check-out and sit together.

Do contact with dates, times and the types of tasks you’re able to do. We need your help to make this happen! Thank you ❤️
