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.
Dedicated Practitioner First Session Announcement
Saturday, October 12th; 9:00am – 10:30am
Meditation Instructor: Matt Hane
Matt Hane is offering a six-month long Dedicated Practitioner Program from October 2019 – March 2020 at Rocky Mountain Insight. The first session is Saturday, October 12th from 9:00am – 10:30am. We will meet on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month from October 2019 – March 2020. The Dedicated Practitioner is offered free of charge and dana is deeply appreciated.
The Dedicated Practitioner Program is a mix of instruction, group interaction, reading assignments and two, half-day silent sits. The Dedicated Practitioner Program meets twice per month on Saturdays and dives deeply into Four Noble Truths and Eight Fold Path. The Dedicated Practitioner Program is a great way to get support from other noble friends on the Buddhist Path. Practicing together strengthens and provides support to our individual practice that goes beyond solo meditation and regular Sangha attendance.
Please email Matt: email@example.com to ask questions or to join the Dedicated Practitioner Program.

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.
