Founded in 2007 by Sensei Koshin Paley Ellison and Robert Chodo Campbell, the New York Zen Center for Contemplative Care (NY Zen Center) is dedicated to transforming the culture of care through contemplative practice by meeting illness, aging, and death with compassion and wisdom. The NY Zen Center brings together the three elements of: training, providing care, and nurturing Zen training and practice. Contemplative care is defined as a multi-faith, relationship-centered approach to care that draws on the contemplative practice of the caregiver as the primary source of wisdom and loving action. The center provides rigorous training which engenders radical compassion in both the caregiver and the patient, and acts as the healing agent of suffering. We dare to be brave and creative, becoming intimate with our own suffering in order to alleviate the suffering of others.
