Volunteering for Self-Discovery
Volunteering is something we know we should do more of, but struggle to make time for. Sometimes people feel overwhelmed with the sheer amount of nonprofits they could support, and don’t know where to start or what type of volunteerism they are looking to perform. People who volunteer regularly often feel a strong emotional tie to the causes and organizations they support, and with it a sense of community and purpose.
But did you know that you can volunteer your time at wellness centers, too? This is a great option for individuals who want to support a cause but perhaps don’t know where to begin. Oftentimes you can volunteer at wellness centers in exchange for meditation sessions or other offerings. Wellness centers and retreats bring together people of all different backgrounds and beliefs, giving you the opportunity to connect and take part in a caring community.
Not only do you get to meet new people, but you’ll also learn more about yourself, too. Perhaps you’ll learn what your true desires or motivations in life are, and the steps you can take to achieve those aspirations.
Volunteering comes in many styles and forms, but perhaps volunteering for your own self-discovery is a crucial first step to becoming better at helping others. Like the old saying goes, you can’t help others if you don’t help yourself first. Check out Diamond Mountain Retreat Center for any volunteering opportunities for your self-discovery path!
