2015 Year-End Fundraiser


Sangha is precious, sangha is community. This year we want you to be able to participate throughout the year-end fundraising season as the thermometer measures the progress toward an ambitious goal of $25,000.

Please consider a one-time or monthly donation.


From Aaron: Spirit has said, if you come with a little cup, it will be filled. If you come with a bucket, it will be filled. If you come with a huge tub, it will be filled. What is the capacity? What you ask for, Love will give. But you also need to be prepared for what you’re given because it will demand work of you.

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 in our home community. 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.

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

With your support, we can continue to offer a range of programs and activities at Deep Spring Center.
