To support efforts to prevent or slow down the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we currently are not having Work Days at IRC.

We hope to hold our next Work Day after shelter in place orders are lifted.

We send you well wishes, and appreciation for your care and compassion to all beings during this outbreak.















Join us for a day of mindfully working together!  Help prepare for the next retreat at IRC and help care for the center.  We’ll be meditating, cleaning, doing repairs, and working in the garden and grounds.  If you have any special handyman skills, your skills would be welcome, let us know when you RSVP.  Bring your own tools if possible.
