“Life of Service Immersion” – a 2-week Serve and Study Program

Sunday, August 27 – Sunday, September 10, 2017

Looking for an opportunity to serve and learn?  Our “Life of Service Immersion” is offered several times throughout the year and is open to everyone, especially students who are looking for some guidance with their dharma studies, meditation practice and/ or yoga.

The remote location of our retreat center allows for silence and the personal space to get quiet, reflect and rejuvenate your practice.  For 2 weeks you have the opportunity to live in rhythm with nature.  Over the 2-week course you will receive 2 weekly meditation classes, 2 weekly guided yoga classes and dharma teachings on the weekend.  Additionally you’ll have the opportunity to serve the Diamond Mountain community 6 hours daily Monday thru Friday in the areas of hospitality, maintenance, landscaping, administration or special projects.  Additionally, ACI Course 18: Great Ideas of Buddhism – Part 3 of 3 will be offered weekends, September 1-3 & 8-10, 2017.


There is no fee for this program and modest, shared accommodations are provided.
