Come join us for our open house, which we host on the first Sunday of every month. You will have a chance to receive meditation instructions, hear a dharma talk, and take a tour of the Great Stupa of Dharmakaya, as well as to simply relax on this serene and powerful land. Bring a friend, and come spend the day in the wild and beautiful Rocky Mountains.
Our open house schedule is as follows:
10:30 am Meditation Instruction and Practice
11:00 am Talk
12:30 pm Lunch
1:30 pm Guided walk to the Great Stupa
2:00 pm Stupa Tour
Please feel free to join us for any or all activities. There is no cost for the program, although we do ask for a $10 lunch donation if you will join us for lunch. We will also be hosting Open Houses on the first Sunday of every month throughout the summer. Registration is not required to attend our Open Houses, although registration allows us to better anticipate levels of attendance and prepare for our visitors.
