Shantideva Meditation Center activities are organized by a committed and friendly group of volunteers who sincerely practice the Buddha’s teachings and aspire to share them with others. We aspire to create a work and community environment that reflects the Buddha’s teachings, bringing the practice of mindfulness. Offering service in our harmonious community is a wonderful opportunity to cultivate positive spiritual potential and share your talents in a meaningful way, generating much benefit for yourself and others.

Some positions are for those committed to serving a specified term and contributing a minimum number of hours. In exchange, we can offer opportunities including teachings and retreats, invitations to private events with visiting teachers, and other benefits.

If you are interested in sharing your ideas, skills, and resources for the benefit of our community and all sentient beings, please write to Desmond Hosford, Director, Shantideva Meditation Center, email hidden; JavaScript is required and let us know your interests, background and availability.
