Seva is a Sanskrit word that describes the act of selfless service. The act of seva is done for the betterment of the collective without regard for the outcome of the individual. Seva is known to be one of the essential keys to a genuinely happy life and harmonious community.
Many who experience the magic of Lotus Bend Sanctuary & Center inquire about how to be a part of the community in manifesting our vision. In response, we have created SEVA SATURDAYS, an opportunity to enjoy the land, connect with one another, and be a part of the Lotus Bend family participating in creating this sanctuary to serve our neighboring communities.
We have a number of projects in various stages and phases. Some of these include:
- ‘Big Buddha’ project
- Katherine’s Garden – dedicated to Mothers and the Feminine
- Meditation trail- prayer hut meditation ridge for quiet contemplation
- Sweat Lodge
- Green House Clean-Up & Restoration
- Hydroponic Garden
We start with a brief morning meditation, work on selective projects, and share lunch together. Seva Saturdays generally begin around 9 a.m. with lunch around 1 p.m., with closure by 3 p.m.. Participants choose how long they stay and what they help with.
