RMI is changing it’s orientation schedule below and moving to a hybrid model (in-person+zoom). See below for more details.
Noble Friends – To attend RMI meetings and classes in person, we strongly recommend, for your safety and as an act of compassion for others, that you are fully vaccinated for COVID-19. If you are ill with a sore throat, cough, chills, body aches, fatigue due to illness, loss of smell or taste, or a fever greater than 99 degrees, please do not enter the vihara. Our sessions will continue to be hybrid (in-person and on Zoom) so, if you prefer and especially if you are ill, please continue to attend via Zoom. While we have relaxed our vaccination requirement at this time, we will continue to monitor public health guidance and potentially change our own as appropriate.

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.
Meditation Orientation – First Wednesday of each month 5:15 PM MST
Currently meeting Hybrid, In person + Zoom
These orientations are for individuals newer to RMI. Material covered includes an introduction to RMI and the protocol used for our Meditation sittings. While this is not intended to be a class on how to meditate, basic instructions are included.
You must register to attend an orientation session. Contact Pat Byrne at [email protected]. You will be sent a zoom link via email once you are registered.

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.
