Volunteers Needed (more to come...)

We’ve been plugging away...We are transitioning our online programs to this new site, as part of Dharma Drum Retreat Center. First up is our Meditation Group Sessions (MGS) on Sundays, followed by series of talks that are beneficial to everyone across the globe without geographical boundaries.

We are also envisoning a physical meditation center in the Manhattan area in New York to provide a conducive in-person environement and teachings for busy people in the city to cultivate their practice while benefiting their day-to-day lives.

Dear Friends, this section is under construction (for information such as online or local volunteering with us).

Please come back and visit this page in the near future.
