THE STORY:

DETROIT ZEN CENTER wrote -

On 8/11/14 Detroit had catastrophic storms.  The Detroit Zen Center's neighborhood was hit hard, with 2.5 ' of water flooding the historic DZC buildings. 

In a dense and poor-to-working class neighborhood, it was founded in 1990 as a residency and practice center for monks and the public, and is a branch of 1,100 year-old Sudeok-sa temple, Korea, where its Abbot and practice leader trained and ordained.  Zen is taught through residential apprenticeship, meditation, dharma talks, and manual work.  The monks, students and residents support themselves and the Zen Center through a sustainably based on-site organic food business, that employs neighbors, buys from urban farms, and offers a co-op.

During the flood DZC heating and electrical systems were damaged, and water flooded the 1920's former speak-easy space, where the library, food business, and boutique operate.  DZC is financially and community-stable, but building funds will now be beyond depleted, and a new roof for the monastery was already in desperate need...any donation is tax-deductible, and more than appreciated.  Questions, contact Jasung Sunim (crowdrise creator) or Myungju Sunim, DZC monastic director info@detroitzencenter.org
