Thank You!

In May 2015 we officially moved in to our home on B Street in East Sacramento. Now we have a wonderful opportunity to make our Dharma Center available to the Sacramento community every day – offering space for events, 12-step programs and community meetings. Our Dharma Center is not just for ourselves, but for all people wishing to benefit others. We also have expanded our capacity to host visiting teachers and become the focal point for American Dharma right here in Sacramento!  Thank you everyone for digging deeply into your Dharma practice, your heart, and your pocket, knowing that what we are creating will be for us, the community and generations of people in the future.  We offer our deepest appreciation for your donation!
