Buddhist Co-housing Community planned: “Householder Refuge”

July 16th, 2012 by Lesa Ricci
Hello Portland-Area Sanghas,
As you may know, Dharma Rain Zen Center is getting squeezed out of our current location and is in the process of purchasing a large build-to-suit parcel in NE Portland.  A potion of our plan is to create a co-housing community for Buddhist practitioners.  We are still early in the process, but expect units to be sold well in advance of occupancy. Click here to read  a 5 page prospectus describing the development – “Householder Refuge.”  If you have members in your group who might be interested, please forward this to them, to your distribution list, and/or post it on a display board.  This is a wonderful opportunity for nourishing the inter-sangha jewel.
With hands palm to palm,
Kakumyo
