DhO Hacked and Upgrade

General

ATTENTION!: It appears that our server has been hacked through this version of Liferay, meaning it is no longer secure, and so expect instability as we deal with this and attempt to upgrade to Liferay 7, which we failed to be able to do last year the last time the team attempted it, but we have no choice at this point, so bear with us as we try again. Save any long posts in a text file before posting them. You can follow me on Twitter at @danielmingram for updates if the site is down. Apologies for any complexity this causes. We will work as fast as we can. We have backups of the database, so hopefully nothing will be lost. Thanks to all helping with this complex process.

Temples for a month stay in Europe
Answer
3/15/17 8:35 AM
I am looking for temples in Europe where I can go and stay for a month or so. I am not looking for a silent retreat center. What I am looking for is a place I can practice, and take part in the daily workings in a non-silent way, donation based.

They can be Zen or Theravada or something else, although I prefer Zen or Theravada.

Thanks.

I can recommend http://www.cittaviveka.org/ - I stayed there for a week. Email the guest monk and he will answer questions you might have. I met some long term guests there (that stayed for multiple months) so a month stay shouldn't be a problem.

I once spent a couple of weeks at their Amaravati branch. Same idea, I guess.
