Would like to find a monastery near NYC where I can stay indefinitely.
There were two zen monasteries that my brother's friend stayed at in France and California where he was able to go and practice meditation there indefinitely.
He had to pay some fee, which included both shelter and food. While there he could stay as long as he wanted to or leave when he wanted to. And, because of a pre-confirmed arrangement, he could also help pay for his stay by cleaning or helping out in the kitchen.
I am looking for a monastery near NYC with a similar setup but everything I'm finding is either a retreat or a week-long session. I'm hoping I can find something that I can reach by using either bus or train.
Any suggestions as to what I should do?
