Deep Spring Center Thought for the day from Aaron: You know when you’re contracted into the small self and when you’re more back and open and there’s not a lot of thought about objects. There’s no planning mind, or if it comes up, it comes up like a butterfly flitting through and it goes. There are no stories, there’s just spaciousness, spacious awareness. This spacious awareness IS the awakened state. People ask me, ‘Once I get stable in that, okay Aaron, what next?’ Why should there be anything next? That’s it. Just rest in awareness; rest in the pure mind.

‘You Are Love; We Are Love’

Deep Spring Center Thought for the day from Aaron: It’s hard to maintain anger at another person and authentically offer the wish, ‘May you have well-being, may you be happy.’ Try it next time anger arises. Try it with the self too, when self-criticism arises. ‘May I have well-being. May I be happy’

An Introduction to Deep Spring Center

Deep Spring Center’s primary focus is to speak to the question of how we may live with more wisdom and compassion, with lovingkindness and non-harm to all beings. Our work falls into two categories, meditation and spiritual inquiry.

In “spiritual inquiry,” questions related to our deepest purposes here on earth are explored. Who are we? Are we merely body and mind or is there a deeper, universal essence to our being? Why are we incarnate, and to what use may we put this incarnate experience? Life offers us some painful experiences. How can we relate to these as “teacher” rather than opponent and respond with increasing wisdom, compassion and love?

Fundamental to our spiritual inquiry is the practice  of meditation. While the core of the meditation practices we teach derive from Buddhist traditions, no ritual is included and no special religious beliefs are necessary to their practice.

Deep Spring Center is, at heart, a community of individuals who are asking questions about how we can live with more clarity and love. Deep Spring Center, the organization, is located in Ann Arbor, Michigan. We offer residential meditation retreats, meditation classes and a meditation sitting group, and conduct workshops on a variety of topics. We also publish a newsletter and spiritual manuscripts and maintain this web site.

Founder and Guiding Teacher

Barbara Brodsky is the founder and Guiding Teacher. She is joined by other Deep Spring Center teachers and outside teachers who are brought in to lead retreats.

Deep Spring Center teachers offer their time on a dana basis, joyfully sharing the teachings. Your free-will offerings to the teachers are welcomed.

Your support allows us to continue to offer a range of programs and activities at Deep Spring Center.

Mission and Goals
  • to offer non-denominational spiritual teachings on non-duality;

  • to teach and support the deepening of awareness of non-duality and related topics through the practice of meditation;

  • to sponsor discussion groups, classes, retreats and workshops designed to provide support for spiritual growth and to further the teachings;

  • to publish and distribute materials concerning these teachings;

  • to foster a community of individuals interested in and practicing these teachings; and,

  • to expand and re-define our specific teachings, always with spiritual focus, in the directions the teachings themselves lead.
