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.

giving ourselves
permission to soften

A daylong retreat with katherine barr
saturday, december 15
9:30am - 4:30pm

This daylong retreat is an opportunity to allow all the "have-tos, supposed-tos and ought-tos" to fade and gently cultivate the courage to be open and present. In a moment of presence, there is freedom. Away from our usual busyness and obligations, there is an invitation, as Rabbi Rami Shapiro says, “to put down all you know, to set aside your story and live from what remains."  All levels of practitioners welcome.


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.


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.)
