Welcome to the Durango Dharma Center!

The Durango Dharma Center (DDC) was formed in 1991 by a few individuals desiring support in their sitting practice. It is now home to many meditators of all levels of practice with classes for beginners, families, and those interested in deeper study of the Buddha's teachings. The DDC is Vipassana (Insight) oriented but welcomes meditators of any tradition.

Winter Warmth: Nourishing Our Hearts, Deepening Our Practice

Daylong Retreat With Maureen Fallon-Cyr
Saturday, January 14, 9 am – 4 pm

In these days of deep winter, warm yourself with a gift of silence and peaceful refuge. During this retreat, we will practice “calm abiding,” bringing mind and body into restful ease through silence, sitting meditation, and walking meditation. All practitioners are welcome, including those new to meditation. 


Beginning Insight Mediation Class
with Erin Treat

Wednesdays in February, 6:00 – 7:30 pm

Insight meditation is a simple technique that develops our natural capacity to be aware. It calms and concentrates the mind and cultivates a stable, non-judgmental awareness that can bring clarity and serenity to daily life. It is also a spiritual path that gradually dissolves the barriers to the full development of wisdom and compassion.
