Rocky Mountain Ecodharma Retreat Center
Rocky Mountain Ecodharma Retreat Center is a low-cost home for spiritual practice, with an emphasis on practice in nature. We are a supportive place for deep practice, a place for meditation, retreats, workshops and Ecodharma; a place for learning from nature, teachers and other participants, and a place for discovering ourselves in a wild environment.
Tell us a bit about how your group was concieved
The center began in 2016 when a group of dharma teachers and practitioners bought 180 acres (with forest trails, meadows, and a creek, along with a lodge, cabin, and barn) as a place to meditate and heal in the natural world.
How many members do you serve? 500
Tell us about one exciting project, program, or other offering you are currently working on.
Each summer we offer Ecodharma retreats that focus on meditation in nature, the ecological implications of spiritual teachings, and how to respond appropriately to the ecological and social challenges that confront us today.
How do the Three Tenets inform your social engagement?
Our ecological situation today is grave, but none of us knows how "the Great Unraveling" (Joanna Macy's term) will unfold. The task for each of us is to "respond appropriately," to do the best we can without knowing whether anything we do will make a difference.
What is the most meaningful challenge your organization Faces?
Ecodharma is a new development in contemporary Buddhism, and there is still resistance to this type of social engagement.
