Starting in March: New Kitchen Steward & Office Steward Positions
In non-Buddhist countries, remote monasteries like Birken depend on the voluntary help of long-term Resident Lay Stewards. Stewards live at the monastery full-time and volunteer their services free of charge. This is an excellent opportunity for practitioners who are looking for a simple life devoted to the Buddha’s teachings, meditation and meritorious acts of service to the Sangha, to dwell in the company of like-minded individuals who are also committed to these ideals.
We ask for a commitment of three months or longer for kitchen stewards and six months to one year or more commitment required for Office Stewards.
If you are interested in this very special opportunity to serve the Birken community, please see our Resident Stewardships webpage for more information and instructions on how to apply.
We look forward to welcoming you to Birken.
