Service

Selfless service is one of the most powerful ways to realize spiritual teachings through real-world experience. Learn to incorporate the teachings into everyday life and transform everyday life into a spiritual path. Accelerate your insights and set fire to your motivation. Allow the practice of selfless service to open your heart. Meet life-long friends.

Diamond Mountain is the perfect place to make a commitment to your spiritual growth through the practice of service. The natural peace of our remote desert setting and the ability to work next to fellow spiritual seekers is an ideal foundation from which to launch or refocus your spiritual path.

Volunteers serve 30 hours per week on average, in the areas of hospitality and cleaning, maintenance, landscaping, cooking or special event-based projects. Weekends are free to relax, meditate and explore local attractions. If you’re looking to go deeper in your own practice and connect with a supportive community of practitioners, this is the perfect opportunity.

We offer several formal Volunteer service programs.

If you’d like to serve at Diamond Mountain outside of our formal Volunteer service programs, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator directly:
