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.

MEETING THE VICISSITUDES OF
LIFE WITH GRACE

A DAYLONG RETREAT WITH NOLIWE ALEXANDER
SUNDAY, JULY 8 FROM 9AM - 4PM

During this daylong meditation retreat, we will explore how to gather the grace, ease and harmony to live in these turbulent and uncertain times. Faced with rapid change, we are often bound, swayed and upended by the eight worldly winds—gain and loss, fame and disrepute, praise and blame, pleasure and pain. These are conditions that affect even a wise and skillful mind and heart. Throughout this retreat, which will include sitting meditation, walking meditation and wisdom circle discussions, we’ll learn how holding the dual aspects of life with wise view and intention helps us navigate our lives with a tender and aware heart. And with this quality of heart, we deepen our practice and resolve in the world.
