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.

Buddhism, psychology and
buddhist psychology

An experiential class for
seasoned practitioners
Six wednesdays starting april 25, 6:00pm - 8:00pm

In this six-week class, we’ll explore the interface of Buddhism and psychology as a support to our practice. We’ll discover how psychological maps aid our awakening; explore the wisdom of Buddhist psychology; and consider the practices of deep mindfulness and embodied attention in releasing fixations that create a limited sense of self. 

We will practice with our own minds, using skillful means to work with our limiting beliefs and difficult emotions as a path to awakening. This class is experiential and explores deep mindfulness practices. It is suitable for seasoned meditators.
