    Respite and RefugE

    A DAYLONG RETREAT for parents WITH Maureen Fallon-Cyr

    Saturday, December 1 from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm

    For those of us who are involved with children, finding time for meditation and mindfulness practices can be particularly challenging. Join us for a day of gentle, rejuvenating practice, as we take time to focus on our own needs. We will explore the practice of mindfulness while caring for children and the possibilities for liberation that are unique in the parenting role. This retreat is appropriate for parents and anyone who has children in their life. There will be time for questions on mindful parenting.


    COST: The cost of the retreat is on a sliding scale of $25-$45. Scholarships are readily available. You may choose to pay $12 or $0 through our online system. If you wish to pay another amount, please contact Terry Leonard at 50tleonard@gmail.com or 970-799-0084. We invite you to pay at the highest level you can afford so that all who seek the teachings may participate. 

    Registration fees support the Durango Dharma Center. This retreat is offered on the basis of dana, a practice of mutual generosity that has been alive since the time of the Buddha. At the end of the retreat there will be an opportunity to offer a donation to Maureen Fallon-Cyr.

    GIVING OURSELVES PERMISSION TO SOFTEN

    A DAYLONG RETREAT WITH KATHERINE BARR

    Saturday, December 15 from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm

    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." 

    Through sitting and walking meditation, short dharma talks and the preciousness of silence, we will have the opportunity to ground, soften and widen with beginner’s mind. 

    This daylong retreat is suitable for new and experienced meditation practitioners. All are welcome. 

    COST: The cost of the retreat is on a sliding scale of $25-$45. Scholarships are readily available. You may choose to pay $12 or $0 through our online system.

    The Art Of Intention

    A Non-Residential New Year's WEEKEND Retreat
    With Erin Treat & Brian Lesage

    Friday, December 28, 5-8 pm 
    Saturday, December 29, from 9-5 
    Sunday, December 30, from 9-3


    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.

    This retreat is designed to offer a deep experience of retreat practice and sangha within an accessible non-residential schedule and format. While participants will go home every night, we require a commitment to attend all of the sessions. All meditators are welcome, from beginners to long-time practitioners.

    COST: The fee for the retreat is on a sliding scale of $100-$200. A special early-bird rate of $80 will be available until November 28. Scholarships are available online at a rate of $40 or $0. If you wish to pay another amount, please contact Tammy Hoier at tsdharmasight@gmail.com or 304-290-4328. 

    Registration fees support the Durango Dharma Center. This retreat is offered on the basis of dana, a practice of mutual generosity that has been alive since the time of the Buddha. Those offering the teachings rely on the donations of retreat participants to support their valuable work in this world. At the end of the retreat there will be an opportunity to offer a donation to the teachers.
