Work Weekend 2022: Not exactly a party, but it’s fun!

June 4 - 5, 2022

Join us for a weekend of work and relaxation to refresh our space for the 2022 season!Summer set up 3

As is customary at Dorje Denma Ling, we schedule a Saturday and Sunday work gathering in the spring to help us prepare for program guests arriving soon. All willing workers are welcome — there’s more than enough to do, and jobs available that will suit all talents and skills.

Of course we host volunteer workers for free, feed them well and give them a Program Credit of $35 per day to use towards a retreat of their choice.

Saturday evening will likely involve a campfire or karaoke depending on the weather. We could fit in a good movie too!

Everyone is welcome, and whole families have been known to come from the city to enjoy some time in nature with a vast number of deer, as well as a few humans. Many hands make light work — plus, you are guaranteed to have some fun.

But do register please, so we can make sure we have a cozy bed and plenty of delicious food ready for you!

See you Saturday morning at 10 AM in the main shrine room for a short sitting, followed by a work meeting to launch the event.
