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 beginner's, families, and those interested in deeper study of the Buddha's teachings. The DDC is Vipassana (Insight) oriented but welcomes meditators of any tradition.

Many spiritual traditions through history have agreed on this: “What you intend is what you get.”
Often we intend unconsciously in ways that bring trouble to ourselves and trouble to others.
In this retreat at New Year’s, the time for being deliberate, we will incline our hearts toward what brings most happiness for ourselves and others: wisdom and love, awareness and acceptance. We will also discern what in our lives to leave behind with the old year, and what we’ll cultivate in the new.
We will spend our days together alternating between group sitting meditation and individual walking meditation in a spectacular natural environment. The teachers will offer daily talks and will meet in groups and individually with retreatants to discuss their spiritual practice. Otherwise we will hold the entire retreat in noble silence.
Suitable for both beginners without experience and experienced practitioners.
