“My religion is kindness.”
The Insight Meditation Community of Charlotte is a voluntary organization and depends on volunteers to carry out its mission of making the Buddha’s teachings available to all who seek them. In volunteering our time and talents, we extend loving kindness to our sangha, the community and the world. Volunteering is an important way to give dana (Pali for generosity) to the sangha; it can open the heart and enrich your life.
This committee plans and organizes the logistics around classes, day-long teachings, and/or weekend retreats. Activities include communication and transportation assistance for guest speakers, set up and registration / check in management.
These individuals, led by the IMCC Coordinator, handle the setup and cleanup associated with our meetings on Wednesday nights and act as greeters for people as they arrive. This is a great way to occasionally help support the work of the Sangha. Setup volunteers are critical to the successful functioning of our weekly groups. You can be trained in one or two sessions and can volunteer as often or as little as your schedule allows.
Greeters are an integral part of our IMCC sangha.
We need your help welcoming meditators on Wednesday evenings.
