The New York Zen Center for Contemplative Care
To transform the culture of care through contemplative practice by meeting illness, aging, and death with compassion and wisdom.
The New York Zen Center has a unique approach in working with grief. Using contemplative techniques and the power of connection, we support those in pain on their journey.

Led by co-founders, Sensei Koshin Paley Ellison and Sensei Chodo Robert Campbell, NYZC is a Dharma organization dedicated to transforming people’s lives through a comprehensive approach that includes Zen practice, contemplative caregiving training, and direct care.

We define contemplative care 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. This rigorous training 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: in our effort to create a more intimate and harmonious world we are intimate with our own suffering in order to alleviate the suffering of others.

Project Launch Date: January 1, 2007
