In these difficult times it is important to know that help is available. Through the kindness and prescience of Kyabje Gelek Rimpoche, we have an established community chaplaincy. The primary purpose of this group is to provide assistance in times of illness, end of life and other difficult life experiences for ourselves and for our loved ones.
If you need Chaplaincy Services, as noted below, please email: email@example.com or call 734-994-3387 ext. 226
Below are the services offered, though due to the current situation of evolving stay-at-home orders and the need for social distancing, the manner of delivering some of the services may need to be adjusted.
One on one pastoral support via direct personal contact, phone or digital media.

About Jewel Heart Chaplains
As members of the Jewel Heart community, Jewel Heart Chaplains come to their role with many years of training in the form of teaching retreats, study, meditation retreats, and regular meditation practice. Jewel Heart Chaplains are approved by Jewel Heart’s Spiritual Director, and are guided by a training and mentoring program, as well as by a code of conduct. All chaplains are also approved within Jewel Heart as designated instructors or facilitators.
As a program of the Jewel Heart Tibetan Buddhist Learning Center, a not-for-profit religious institution, the Jewel Heart Chaplaincy is an organized, unlicensed, volunteer program that provides wise and compassionate support and care to its membership, and the larger community as requested. Its activities do not constitute services provided by other human services programs that are licensed or credentialed by various governmental or professional agencies, such as nursing care, mental health counseling, social work, or education. Instead, the Jewel Heart Chaplaincy provides its services as an adjunct to and in collaboration with these services. Any particular advice or guidance given by individuals associated with the Jewel Heart Chaplaincy does not necessarily represent or reflect the opinion of the institution of Jewel Heart Tibetan Learning Center.
