Volunteer at Sweetwater

There are many ways to volunteer at Sweetwater Zen Center. We invite all those interested to work with us to volunteer at SWZC.

Work practice, or Samu, is a basic and central aspect of training in the Zen tradition, forming one of the foundations of Sangha, or community. In work practice we carry our practice into our daily life–approaching work as an extension of our zazen practice, and to see our general lives as ‘not separate,’ and filled with many opportunities to both serve and to work in harmony with others.
