WELCOME TO THE DURANGO DHARMA CENTER
Guided by the Buddha’s teachings (Dharma) and grounded in insight meditation practice (vipassana), the Durango Dharma Center is a refuge where people of all walks of life can gather to quiet our minds, open our hearts, find community, and cultivate a more peaceful relationship with ourselves and our lives.
We offer regular weekly and monthly sitting meditation programs and dharma talks as well as beginning meditation classes, courses for deepening study, daylong retreats, non-residential retreats, and residential retreats.
We also host a variety of spiritual friends (kalyana mitta) groups, including gatherings for seniors and the recovery community. Some of our teachers also offer individual discussions for committed students looking for support for their practice.
The Dharma Center is a community of belonging. We aspire to be a refuge to people of all races, gender identities, sexual identities, socioeconomic backgrounds, political persuasions and belief systems. Your presence is welcome here.
Rooted in the living transmission of Theravada Buddhism, the purpose of the Durango Dharma Center is personal and collective liberation. We practice together to cultivate awakened minds and compassionate hearts. Building a culture of generosity and responsiveness, we aspire to cultivate the seeds of awakening for all beings.
Our highest aspiration is to offer the skillful means that unveil the innate, intuitive wisdom from which liberation blossoms.
Learn more about meditation and the liberating teachings of the Buddha—and what to expect when you come to the Dharma Center.
Each Monday evening, we offer a sitting meditation and dharma talk from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. It is usually offered in a hybrid format (both in person and online) but please check the schedule by clicking below to make sure. All are welcome.
The Dharma Center offers beginning meditation classes several times each year as well as ongoing classes that explore the deeper teachings of the Buddha. We also offer daylong retreats, non-residential retreats and residential retreats.
The sangha makes the center.
The Buddha shared that “Generosity brings happiness at every stage of its expression. We experience joy in forming the intention to be generous. We experience joy in the actual act of giving something. And we experience joy in remembering the fact that we have given.”
In the Buddhist tradition, the teachings are considered so valuable you can’t put a price on them. For more than 2,600 years, teachers and communities have sustained one another through the practice of dana, a Pali word that translates as “generosity.” The practice of dana has allowed the teachings of the Buddha to be heard by all people, regardless of socioeconomic background, and has supported the teachings’ transmission through countless generations.
The Durango Dharma Center only exists through the generosity of those who value what is offered. That’s you.
Your generosity really makes a difference.
“For the awakening of the heart, conditions are always good enough.”
