Over 100,000 guests visit Lake Shrine each year, and we strive to keep the Meditation Garden and Temple free of charge to all.  The operation of such a large site requires many dedicated volunteers to perform a variety of roles.  If you have a few hours a month to offer, Lake Shrine will customize your time to fit existing needs. Joining one of the volunteer teams is a great way to become more involved with Lake Shrine’s spiritual community. 

Please complete and submit our volunteer application and a friendly Lake Shrine representative will respond!

Morning of Service

One Saturday each month Lake Shrine holds “Morning of Service” to help beautify the Temple and prepare for events. The morning begins with a short monastic-led group meditation at 9:00 am, followed by 2 and 1/2 hours of light work activity. There are tasks to suit all abilities. The morning of work concludes with a monastic-led noon meditation and vegetarian lunch on the patio. No advanced arrangements needed. Please join Lake Shrine’s Morning of Service!

“Do not leave anybody out of your love.
Keep everyone in your heart, and they will keep you in theirs.”

This day shall be the best day of my life. Today I will start with a new determination to dedicate my devotion forever at the feet of Omnipresence.
