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.

True happiness is not about acquisition but rather opening to the natural joy and aliveness right inside you. Today, as we are bombarded with messages that heighten our fear and sadness about the world, more than ever it is vital to understand the importance of joy as a central aspect of spiritual practice. We need to remember how to stay connected to that place inside that makes life worth living. Then our own wellbeing and joy can become gifts to a troubled world.

the art of intention

A non-residential new year's weekend retreat
with erin treat & brian lesage
Friday, December 28, 5-8pm
saturday, december 29, 9-5pm
sunday, december 30, 9-3pm


The arrival of a new year beckons us to turn inward, to reflect upon our deepest intentions and motivations. Through the art of skillfully embodying our heart's intentions, we support the unfolding of love, wisdom, and freedom in our lives and the lives of others.

 This non-residential weekend retreat, taught by longtime Durango Dharma Center teachers Erin Treat and Brian Lesage, will explore the art of intention through meditation, wise reflection, and inquiry. The weekend will also include ceremonies that invite us to honor the old and welcome the new. Join us for a unique offering to usher in 2019 with presence, clarity, and compassion.
