SEVA-Selfless Service with Norma Nakai Burton M.Div. Seva” is a Sanskrit word meaning “selfless service” or work performed without any thought of reward or repayment.

Come hear what spiritual teachers and psychologists say about the paradoxical truth that selfless service does result in great benefits to ones health and happiness.
