< Back to Question and Answer

I am mentally ill and currently looking for a sangha. I came across one whose rules state that mentally ill people are forbidden in the dojo. Are OneDrop's views similar? I tried to find information about OneDrop's views but couldn't find any.

In the Itteki Zendos there are no such rules. Yet people who are mentally unstable need to be cautious. If you feel too much pressure, stop with the practice of zazen, relax, and when you feel relieved, join again in the practice. The main point is to not feel pressure but to have a good time and enjoy.

Due to Roshi's busy schedule this year, we are currently not accepting any new questions at this time
