Deep Spring Center

A global community for meditation & spiritual inquiry

Meditation and Spiritual Inquiry

Deep Spring Center focuses on how we can live with more wisdom and compassion, with lovingkindness and non-harm to all beings. Our primary work includes meditation and spiritual inquiry. Spiritual inquiry entails questions related to our deepest purposes here on earth: 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 “teachers” rather than opponents 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 tradition, no ritual is included and no particular 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 greater clarity and love.


Daily Reflections 

“I am happy to share the Dhamma with anybody with a sincere interest to live their lives more fully grounded in the Dhamma.”
