Volunteer

Thanks and love to all who have helped in a variety of ways to nurture and support Zen Center North Shore as we reach out to each other and to others in our community. There are always opportunities to become more active in our sangha. Please contact Kathy Lique at zenklique@gmail.com if you’d like to talk about what you’d like to contribute, or to help with any of the following:

  • A member who can develop an overall marketing/outreach strategy for the Center. You may also decide to put together a group that would help with this and with its implementation.

  • A member who can write press releases and other media in coordination with marketing and outreach.

  • A member with graphic design skills who could help design flyers and members who can help distributing them around the North Shore.

  • A member to convene a committee to address needs to make additional renovations to our space and recruit members who can help with this (we have several who have helped with this in the past.)

  • A member to work with our Treasurer sending thank you notes for donations to the Center.

  • For meditation sessions mornings and evenings each week, we train people in various roles: Doan (bell-ringing), Kokyo (leading chants), Fukudo (playing a small drum during chants), and Chiden (caring for altars). Please let Jikan know if you can help with one of these roles. Bell-ringing training is offered Thursday evenings from 5:30 - 6:15 pm. Email jikanbevan@gmail.com for more information.

  • Arranging flowers for the altars.

Other donations to consider include: Tea, coffee, toilet paper and paper towels (100% recycled, ideally), weekly fresh flowers, and altar supplies: white, 12-inch tapered candles and votives.

Thank you very much for your support of Zen Center North Shore. It makes a difference, and allows you to become a significant part of our community.
