  • Description

    Description

    We are a nonprofit Buddhist retreat center located in the Mojave High Desert just outside the town of Joshua Tree California. We run regular group and solo retreats. We are in the Vipassana lineage of U Ba Khin. We are looking for people interested in both workaway and deepening their meditation practice to come help support a not for profit meditation center. We are located several miles down a dirt road in the gorgeous high desert bordering public land. It is a wonderful opportunity to be of service, learn new skills and connect with your meditation practice.
