BCIMS has a Karuna (compassion) Sangha Support group to assist those in our sangha who may need help for various reasons from time to time. It's an opportunity for us to practice generosity, compassionate action and to support each other in concrete, caring ways.
For example, if there’s a sudden or prolonged illness, surgery or other unexpected crisis. In short, it's an opportunity to live the dharma, and the meaning of sangha, which is community.
We can also offer spiritual care in the form of home or hospital visits for those experiencing grief, loss, transition, or crisis who would welcome any of the following: compassionate listening, someone to meditate with, guided meditation, chanting or Healing Touch.
