DHARMA KIDS – Sunday March 1 – 8:00-8:45AM
Dharma Kids is our program for children ages 4-12. 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.




After a winter of cold, join your spiritual friends in celebration of spring and a return of Dr. Lucinda Green as teacher. The beautiful grounds of The Franciscan Retreat Center in Colorado Springs through which we will enjoy walking meditation will feature blooming fruit trees and bulbs in a display of Mother Earth renewing her bounty. This is a time for all of us to renew our dedication to our practice and experience that special rejuvenation which only comes through a retreat, and the teachings and interviews with Dr. Green.

NEW! The Book Of Ruth

Now available here for download, a pdf version of “The Book Of Ruth: Sayings of Ruth Denison” (19MB, may take a minute to open):

The Book Of Ruth: Sayings of Ruth Denison


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.

Collected with devotion by Jain
Edited by Lucinda “Treelight” Green, Ph.D.
Original publication: 2005, Rocky Mountain Insight
Prepared for digital distribution by Jay Babcock, Joshua Tree, 2015
