Donate to the Contemplative Resource Center

The CRC thanks you for your kind consideration and generosity. With your support we will realize our goal of expanding the CRC campus.

“A dharma center is not necessarily a place just for contemplative activities any longer. It can be a full-fledged community for learning of all kinds, with social activities for young and old and families with children. This is a departure from traditional dharma organizations, but this transition is critically important for Buddhism to be viable in America.”

– Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche, Rebel Buddha: A Guide to a Revolution of Mind
