Our Vision – A Dedicated Full-Time Buddhist Center

Official ribbon cutting!

Help us grow the seeds of Dharma

Thanks to your help our vision to establish a full-time Buddhist center and meditation space in Carbondale, CO has finally come to life! In order to sustain the center and continue to create the conditions for the Dharma seeds to grow here in the Western Slope, we are now actively fundraising.

Help us raise $60,000 to fund the center for one full year! This will allow us to cover all expenses, continue bringing in visiting teachers, and host all of our programs and retreats for a full year.

Fundraising Goal:  $60,000 needed by the end of the year.  

Status: October 2nd – Raised $5,838

The Way of Compassion Dharma Center is the first of its kind in the Roaring Fork Valley. It is a gathering place for Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike to listen to, study, and mediate on the teachings of the Buddha. As a traditional center, we never charge for the Dharma and offer all of our teachings a donation basis.

Our center also gives our community the opportunity to host visiting teachers such as Venerable Tenzin Priyadarshi, Venerable Thubten Semkye from Sravasti Abbey, the monks of Gaden Shartse Monastery, and others.

In addition to our regular teachings, retreats, and events our center is open from 9am-5pm, Monday through Friday, for anyone who wishes to come and meditate, pray, or just sit quietly.

We invite you to join us soon!
