With the departure of four staff members opportunities are opening up for others who might wish to be part of the day-to-day work of Springwater.
There are specific areas that will need attention, but we can be flexible in how these jobs are approached—the main criterion is that someone applying to staff has an interest in the meditative work of the Center and is willing to learn some of the skills that are needed.
Positions opening are in housekeeping, gardening, web site maintenance, bookkeeping/business/financial, kitchen and publicity. Generally staff will also help with projects that are outside of their main area and we all share in work related to holding retreats, all day sittings and other events.
Outside of work there are opportunities to sit with each other, meet in group and staff dialogue, and attend retreats. We are also able to socialize and to enjoy the beauty of the land and the opportunities of the area.
Please write to Wayne Coger if you are interested in learning more about these possibilities and about what staff life and work might entail.
