Diamond Mountain Retreat Center offers visitors the opportunity to realign and renew through selfless volunteer and service opportunities.
Volunteer Opportunities at Diamond Mountain Retreat Center
At Diamond Mountain, temporary residents are offered the opportunity to embrace self-discovery through selflessness. This is accomplished by participating in one of DMRC’s two volunteer programs:
- Live the Life of Service
- DMRC Serve & Study
Both programs are open to individuals who are self-motivated and energetic about contributing to something larger than themselves. These programs are wonderful opportunities of self-discovery that work from the outside in!
Live the Life of Service
Lasting for a duration of four weeks, the “Life the Life of Service” program requires visitors to serve DMRC 30 hours weekly in a wide range of projects. Focuses of these projects include:
- Hospitality and cleaning
- Event organizing and hosting
During this program, participants will return to humanity’s roots by embracing a social culture that thrives in nature. Volunteers are provided with a modest grocery stipend, which encourages appreciation of nourishment and nutrition on the most basic level. From this experience, individuals will enjoy lessons on a variety of relaxation techniques, including dharma.
This experience is only available to three volunteers at a time.
DMRC Serve & Study
Open to 10 participants at a time, DMRC Serve & Study is a volunteer project lasting between two and four weeks. Volunteers are offered the opportunity to decide how long their stay will last. Similar to “Life of Service,” volunteers will immerse themselves in nature-based lessons on relaxation. Additionally, visitors will participate in one of the following learning programs:
- Gift of Liberation: Lam Rim
- Arya Nagarjuna Wisdom
Regardless of which program visitors select, the results will be replenishing! Through their experiences at DMRC, volunteers will build long-lasting friendships and align with lessons that will prove to make a life-long positive impact in their lives and the lives of others.
