A ten dollar donation is welcome to support our Blue Lotus but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

Donations are deeply appreciated as they support the expenses of maintaining the Blue Lotus Center. Bhante Chan, Bhante San and the other monastics providing classes and support through the center are self supporting through their full time jobs in the health professions. They do not accept any of the donation monies for the center; their work on our behalf at the center is their gift to us. Let's practice generosity during these challenging times as we support the Blue Lotus Center within our means to do so.

Take refuge in this Buddhist-orientated recovery program that is widely encompassing and does not ask anyone to believe anything, only to trust the process and do the " hard work " of recovery.

This practice benefits anyone that has been personally affected by any form of negative conditioning or behavior up to and including addiction. It includes a program where you can talk about, examine and find solutions to your particular problems by using the Four Noble Truths and Eightfold Path of Buddhism.

Donations of $5 are appreciated to support the program and the Center. Please observe the dedicated space of the Center and do not wear shoes past the entryway.

The program starts promptly at 6PM to allow time for meditation at the beginning of the sessions.
