Special Announcement

Let’s meditate together … every weekday morning starting Monday June 17 at 6:30 a.m. MDT.  You can join in either on the Zoom platform or in person in the RMI vihara (if you are fully vaccinated.)   
This is a great way to support yourself and your practice as well as gain and give support to others.  
Good reasons to join us every Monday – Friday:
1.  The Buddha suggested cultivating and sustaining wholesome activity as one arm of Right Effort.
2.  We will be supporting each other in this wholesome activity.
3,  We will start each weekday with the possibility of greater calm and clarity to help us through the day.

4.  We will be building our meditation muscles.

Wednesday Sangha Sittings and Dhamma Instruction 6:00 – 7:00 PM MST
Currently meeting in Zoom: https://zoom.us/j/755197211
Our main weekly event, Sangha Night, is open to all. We begin our evening with a short walking meditation to settle the body and mind followed by 20 – 30 minutes of sitting practice. Then, our usual program follows with a Dharma talk on one of the many aspects of the Buddhist path by one of our highly qualified and experienced Dharma Teachers or Meditation Instructors. We also celebrate special programs and events on Wednesday nights, for example: meditations on the 4 Divine Abidings every 1st Wednesday (see below), Refuge Vow ceremonies, recitation of the 5 Precepts on Wednesdays nearest the full-moon, and holiday celebrations such as Wesak. Please see our schedule for upcoming special events. We invite you to join us at Sangha Night for meditation, Dharma, and spiritual friendship.

During 2021, we are studying the Buddha’s teachings through the Dhammapada. The Dhammapada is a collection of verses from the Pali canon (the Buddhist scriptures) and are attributed to the Buddha. There are 423 short verses organized into 26 chapters. RMI teachers will take a few verses from successive chapters each week and provide Dhamma instruction based on those
verses. Join us!

Sunday Sittings at 9:00 AM MST
Zoom link: https://zoom.us/j/155999616

We invite you to join us Sunday mornings to calm your mind and open your heart through Buddhist Vipassana meditation practice. Vipassana means “clear-seeing” or “insight” and was taught by the Buddha to help cut the root of suffering and lead practitioners towards full awakening. We begin Sunday mornings with a short walking meditation followed by a reading from one of our Dharma Teachers or Practice Leaders. We then sit for roughly 40 minutes in silent meditation.

Dharma Kids Schedule currently varies

During the pandemic, Dharma Kids is meeting outside at Thorndale Park.  Schedule varies based on the weather. Please email [email protected] to get updates.

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.
