DHARMA KIDS – Second Sundays 8:00-8:50AM
Dharma Kids is our program for children ages 4-12 held the second Sunday morning of the month. We use stories, crafts and child-friendly meditation techniques to teach the basics of the Dharma. Lessons in mindfulness and compassion are related to the kids’ everyday experiences of anxiety, boredom, anger and sadness to help them become happier, calmer and more understanding.
Join us at: 2525 W Pikes Peak Ave Suite A, Colorado Springs, CO 80904
We are located in Old Colorado City in the public parking lot bounded by Pikes Peak Ave., Colorado Ave., 25th St. and 26th St.

The Book Of Ruth
We have lost our Dear Ruth, but her wise and witty words live on. Now available here for download, a pdf version of “The Book Of Ruth: Sayings of Ruth Denison” (19MB, may take a minute to open):
Ruth Denison is one of RMI Founder Lucinda Green’s root teachers. For those who are unfamiliar with Ruth’s teaching, it is probably best understood as a combination of U Ba Khin’s vipassana meditation technique, her teacher Charlotte Selver’s sensory awareness techniques, Theraveda Buddhist doctrine, and Ruth’s own studies, discoveries and innovations. In addition, through the decades, Ruth has constantly refined her teaching, routinely emphasizing one aspect or another of the technique to suit what she understands to be a student’s needs in that moment, in that place.
