Membership in the Center for Pragmatic Buddhism

Once members transition to the new portal, the above link will be removed. 

The Center for Pragmatic Buddhism is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the spread of the Dharma in Central Ohio and helping all people decrease unsatisfactoriness through mindful awareness of the present moment.  By becoming a member of the CPB you are assisting us in our mission and taking a further step in furthering your own practice of altruism and compassion.  Membership is not required to attend practice, classes or other events with us and there is never any charge; however we do ask a goodwill donation (or dana) to help support the Center at any event you attend.

 

Membership in the Center means - among other things - that you can ignore these requests for dana as you have already committed to the support of the CPB in your membership pledge.  All donations by members are Tax Deductible.
