Get Involved with Others Learning to Lead a Simpler Life
New to Voluntary Simplicity?
We invite you to attend a meeting of the San Diego Voluntary Simplicity Group. The San Diego Voluntary Simplicity Group meets monthly to explore together what it means to live a simpler life. We are a diverse group of people with varied interests. A group member's focus may be walking lightly on the earth, a desire for inner peace and personal development, improving health, reducing stress, seeking financial freedom, reducing clutter or consuming less of the world's resources. Group participants are united in their desire to thoughtfully choose how to live their lives. You are welcome to join us!

Been coming to our meetings for a while?
We encourage you to get more involved. Here are a few ideas:
- Volunteer to help out with a Voluntary Simplicity meeting - you can get to know others in the group by volunteering for any of the following activities for one of our meetings
- Serve as a greeter - greet newcomers as they arrive at our meetings. See our greeters guidelines to see what a greeter does.
- Facilitate the meeting - introduce the speakers, keep us on time. We've prepared a facilitators guide to show you exactly what to do, and make it easy.
- Prepare a closing reading - read a short inspirational reading at the end of the meeting.
- Serve as a speaker or workshop leader. See our topic planning guide for more information.
- Share your experience - participate on a panel discussion at one of our meetings. See our panel guide for more information on what a panel does.
