Community Use!

Now that we have a location in the Hilltop/Westgate area we want to be your community center.

If you are in - or know of - groups who need a space to meet - from book groups to recovery groups to yoga or tai chi classes - we have the space for you. Whether it's a large open space (25 x 25) or a comfortable seating area for discussions, we have them.

 

Our pricing is very reasonable and can be adjusted based on the needs and size of your group.

 

Please email us at cocpbinfo@cocpb.com for more information or to view the Center. 

Mission

 

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, we have a special focus on members of our community who are LGBTQ+.
