By popular demand, we will be holding classes for meditation, Basics of Buddhism, and for those who are taking the precepts in December. Click below for the class schedule. 


Pragmatic Buddhism is mindfulness made meaningful for today’s world. When interpreted through the lens of Pragmatic philosophy, the philosophy of the Buddha, Siddhartha Gautama, is a relevant recipe for whole-life development. The progeny of the Buddhist evolution embodied by Chan and Zen, Pragmatic Buddhism (PB) is an empirical, practical, practicable action plan for cultivating situational virtuosity.


We offer training and practice in various Buddhist meditation techniques as well as community celebrations such as weddings, funerals, celebrations of new children, etc. to all people in Central Ohio.  We have a special mission to the LGBTQ community.
