April 18th, 2011 by

Hello friends,

My father is very ill and is having surgery (a quadruple by pass and new valve) Monday, April 18th in morning at 9am. Any thoughts/practice or prayers you can offer my father and mother would be welcome comfort.

Many thanks,

Wendy Griffin

June Sublet in NW Portland: Furnished Studio Apartment, $540 plus utilities and damage deposit

April 18th, 2011 by

I will be on retreat for the month of June and need to sublet my apartment…

Fantastic location – walking distance to everything: theaters, grocery stores, cafe’s, banks, stores….. You name it, you can walk to it. And when you can’t, it’s on major bus lines and only a few blocks from the freeway entrance…

The secure building is four floors including the basement. The property manger, lives in the building – he’s great. My studio is fully furnished, clean and full of character with vintage woodwork, big bay window, hardwood floors. I have a meditation area with a full shrine. There’s a separate sizable kitchen and a sizable bathroom with a claw-foot tub and shower. My futon bed folds up into a couch if you want to do that. There is a coin laundry in the basement, this is also where the bike storage is. It’s a non-smoking building. Even though it’s right off Burnside, you don’t hear street noise. No pets.

I’d prefer someone in the Shambhala community…email me here if you’re interested.
