Path of Service

What is the Path of Service Sangha?

A sangha dedicated to EBMC volunteers.  This Sangha gathers periodically to:

* honor your service to the Dharma
* sit together, meet each other, share stories
* hear a brief update on the “State of the Center”
* have FUN !


How do I Join the PoSS?

If you have not volunteered and would like to, please visit our Volunteer page to see some positions that are open. If you have any questions, contact our Volunteer Coordinator via our contact page.
