For the Disabled and Chronically Ill

Postby sattva » Sun May 30, 2010 1:34 am

Does anyone know of a temple or monastery where a person who is disabled and/or has serious health problems could live and practice the Dharma but with consideration to their limitations?

My avatar is one of many calligraphies painted by my teacher. Mitra Bishop, Roshi. She has them for sale to try to raise money for her building project. Also, if you purchase books on Amazon, you can use Amazon Smile and put in Mountain Gate (In Ojo Sarco, NM) and a small % will go to the monastery.

Hi Sattva

Have you tried contacting individual centres and monasteries to see if they can accommodate?
kind regards

in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
