DHARMA WORK EXCHANGE PROGRAM
Monday October 10th through Monday October 30th.
Dharma is a yogic principal that means you perform a service or duty to Divine Source for the betterment of yourself, your community or the world. The Dharma work exchange gives everyone a chance to live in spiritual community. The work is considered selfless service. All work performed is considered equal. All energy is offered to the Divine within. Dharmic service helps release karma and advances spirituality
We are working towards betterment of the spiritual community, Shamballa Light Center. Work includes helping to build geometric domes, clearing the property of debris and assisting in the kitchen. Work is performed 3 to 4 hours a day and should be completed with the attitude of gratitude and selfless service to all.
You can come for the week, a weekend, or stay the entire time.
