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 his 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.

Our founder is Barbara Brodsky. She is joined by other Deep Spring teachers. We also bring in outside teachers who lead retreats.

Deep Spring Center is a non-profit organization staffed by volunteers, and enjoys recognition by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) tax exempt public charity.
