The Bozeman Dharma Center was founded in July 2013 by Mem Schultz, Susan Morgan, Alice Robison and Suzanne Colón. They are grateful to the efforts of Sheila Devitt and many others who held a vision for a designated space for meditation in this community.  Together with the leaders of the Insight Community and the Bozeman Zen Group, they created a shared home for Buddhist practice in Bozeman.

We Run on Generosity!
Many thanks to all who help support the center with time, care, funds and attendance.
