Dorm Renovations Progress at 1338 Property

5-Day Rinzai Zen Retreat led by Jeff Shore
January 2, 2019

Renovations are underway at the second small retreat dorm at our center. We have completed demolition to the interior and have rewired the electrical of the whole house. Our plan is to build another bathroom and redo all the walls. In addition, we need to change the roofs of both this and our other dorm house and redo the landscape and rain water irrigation of the second dorm (there’s land erosion). All of which excludes interior furnishing after the renovation is complete. There are lots to be done and the cost has exceeded our savings. These buildings are important to sustain continual retreat practice at the center, which is beneficial to and transformative for so many people’s lives.

Our projected aim for this fundraising is $100,000 in total. Please join our efforts to make our retreat facility the best that it can be. Retreats lie at the heart of Chan practice. It helps people and create meaningful lives. Your generosity transforms lives and is itself an extremely meaningful practice. You may donate by Paypal, send in your check to our address. Our Paypal info and mailing address are on our website here. You can also contact us directly for bank information for larger sums of donation. Of course all donations are tax-deductible.

Much blessings for your generosity.

Be well,
Guo Gu
