With its first Three Year Retreat planned to start on April 4, 2015, KCC is searching for qualified, mature practitioners to live and work at its rural retreat center, Ser Chö Ösel Ling, to support the long retreat.
These stipended positions are first and foremost opportunities to practice. Ser Chö Ösel Ling's modest living conditions, isolated location, natural setting, and dharma-focused community are supports to a contemplative life. The Retreat Master, Lama Michael Conklin, has practiced nearly 40 years in the Kagyu tradition and considers the stipend volunteer team to be central to the retreat community. This means that stipend volunteers are expected to bring dharma practice to everyday life, work and relationships at SCOL. KCC is committed to supporting skillful communication and healthy working relationships.
