Ratna Ling is a community dedicated to serving the welfare of others and cultivating work as a means to self-knowledge. Our faculty and staff consists entirely of full-time resident volunteers from all walks of life from California and New York to Brazil, Japan and Hungary. We live and work in the redwood coastal hills of Sonoma County, CA. This year-round residential work-study opportunity combines meaningful work with opportunities for self-growth. No religious affiliation is required to volunteer although we are seeking those with a sincere interest in Buddhism and a strong work ethic.
