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.

Dharma and awakening
for ordinary people

An Essential dharma class
with maureen fallon-cyr
Six Wednesdays starting Jan. 17th, 6-8pm

In his book After Buddhism: Rethinking the Dharma for a Secular Age, author Stephen Batchelor offers a vision of Buddha’s life based in his humanity. By transcending Buddhist dogma and offering the teachings in a secular context, Batchelor brings the dharma fully alive for householders and serious students of Buddhism.

In this Essential Dharma class series, we will use an experiential orientation to deepen our understanding of the Buddha's teachings. Through mindfulness, didactic lessons, group exercises and lively discussion, we'll bring the teachings to life and practice ways to bring dharma into our everyday lives.
