Welcome to the 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. 

Upcoming EVENTS

buddhism, psychology, and buddhist psychology

An essential dharma class with maureen fallon-cyr
wednesdays, march 20 - may 1 (excluding april 24)
6PM - 8Pm
  In this course, we’ll explore how an understanding of Western psychology can support and deepen Buddhist practice. We’ll learn about the wisdom of Buddhist psychology, discover how psychological maps aid in awakening, and practice deep mindfulness and embodied attention for releasing fixations that create a limited sense of self.

Importantly, 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 will explore deep mindfulness practices. It is suitable for seasoned meditators and will be limited to 50 participants.


residential retreat 

investigating reality: The four ennobling truths
a five-night retreat with erin treat & eugene cash

This insight meditation retreat will utilize the foundations of mindfulness to cultivate a steady, embodied awareness, which will allow us to look deeply into the reality of our immediate experience. The practice of mindfulness and meditation bring clarity of mind and heart that deepens into wisdom and compassion.

On this retreat we will explore the essence of the Buddha’s teachings of suffering and liberation by examining the four ennobling truths suffering, the cause of suffering, freedom from suffering, and the path that leads to freedom -through meditation, interactive investigation, and reflection. The embodiment of our understanding will allow us to more deeply recognize our true nature, inviting greater freedom, spaciousness, and love.  

The Dharma Center's art exhibition is ongoing this fall. Come check out the paintings, fiber-arts pieces, scarves and cards any Monday after the regular sit and talk. Between 7-7:30, one of the five artists in the show will be downstairs in the gallery space. (Art by Carol Meckling.)
