Open Meditation Group at Tara Mandala Retreat Center

Tara Mandala is again offering the opportunity to gather for group meditation practice and discussion of Buddhist practice and philosophy, The group’s intention is to support ongoing and regular meditation practice.

This is a chance to develop a regular weekly practice, to meet others interested in Buddhism, and to support your ongoing meditation practice and Dharma study.

We will begin by focusing on the Six Paramitas, or the Six Perfections, which are the six principles of enlightened living including generosity, morality, patience, diligence, contemplation, and wisdom. The practice of these helps us develop bodhicitta in relation to our daily lives.

Tara Mandala residents, Tibetan Buddhist Nun Anila Annalis Jazer Khandro and Julia Jean, director of education, will facilitate the Sunday afternoon teachings.

No previous meditation experience is required, and although you are encouraged to attend regularly; drop-ins are welcome.

There is no charge; donations are welcome.

The sessions take place on most Sundays, 4:30-6:30 p.m., at the Tara Mandala Retreat Center in Pagosa Springs

Directions are online at
