Please post to your Facebook Wall, tweet, email this…let’s spread the word!

This from Kiley Jon Clark at HMP Street Dharma:

Dear HMP friends,

I need your help this time.

Please contact as many Buddhists/People/Meditation/Groups/Temples/Centers as you can…and ask them to please send us some meditation cushions!

We have a beautiful Chapel at Haven for Hope, that we are going to be allowed to use for Homeless Meditation Practitioners

When it is our night to use this Chapel, I want it to look, smell, and feel like a real Buddhist Sanctuary…because…it will be…at least for that night…and we want it complete with Alter items, incense, candles, colorful tapestries, etc…and most importantly: Meditation Cushions!

Can you send some emails to people you know, and help me get this done, Please?


if you know a better way to get cushions, let me know…like setting up an account with a company that makes them or something like that….

but I don’t want to ask for money…it would be cool if many, many People and Centers all just sent one Cushion a piece…and then everyone would have a hand in providing meditation instruction in the Homeless Community.

counting on you,
