Pragmatic Buddhism is mindfulness made meaningful for today’s world. When interpreted through the lens of Pragmatic philosophy, the teachings of the Buddha, Siddhartha Gautama, are a relevant recipe for whole-life development.
The ultimate result of Buddhism evolving through time is a practical life plan laid out by the Buddha and clarified through centuries of teachings, talks, and our own personal practice.
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.
Here at COCPB, we are passionately committed to diversity and inclusion both in our center and in our city, especially with a special focus on members of our community who are LGBTQ+.
