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.

The DDC People of Color Sangha is a new group at the Dharma Center that welcomes anyone identifying as a person of color to gather together in sangha. Sangha is the ancient Pali word for community—community connected by a shared intention to explore and deepen in the Buddhist-based practices of mindfulness, wisdom, and compassion.

During our meetings, we will meditate together followed by dharma discussion facilitated by Yong Oh, a community dharma leader and retreat-teacher-in-training. By practicing together and honoring our shared experience in a safe and welcoming space, we have the opportunity to cultivate this spiritual path and explore how these powerful teachings of the heart relate to our everyday lives and lived experience.

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.
