Volunteer Training Videos: Welcome and Thanks!

Thank you for taking the time to review these short videos before your next volunteer shift at Spirit Rock. We created them to help volunteers understand what to prioritize when serving in forward-facing roles at the center. The five brief segments cover general topics such as how to approach service as a Dharma practice, as well as more practical tips for handling common questions that come up when volunteering. Links to more resources to explore the topics raised are at the bottom of this page.  We are so grateful for your service, and please let us know at if you have any questions about volunteering. Deep bows of appreciation to you for being part of our “sangha of ten thousand hands.”
