Wednesday night guided meditation and dharma talk
August 17 @ 6:00 pmBy donation
The Way of Compassion Dharma Center is located in Carbondale, Colorado. Our sister Dharma center is the Here and Now Center in Gunnison, CO. We also serve a virtual sangha of distributed practitioners across the nation. We are a Rime (non-sectarian) Buddhist center dedicated to the cultivation of wisdom and compassion through the study of Buddhist Dharma. Every Wednesday join us and our spiritual director John Bruna for a guided meditation and talk with time for questions. This is a live Zoom broadcast that we watch on a projector as a group from Gunnison. Chairs, meditation cushions, and bathroom provided. Please bring water if needed. www.wocdc.org for more information.
Gunnison Valley is also host to several beloved annual events. A classic winter event is The Alley Loop, a Nordic ski race that doubles as a costume contest. In fall, Mt. Crested Butte hosts the famous Chili and Beer Festival. Every summer in Gunnison, a crowd gathers to watch America’s fourth-oldest rodeo, Cattlemen’s Days. There are also festivals in Crested Butte that celebrate local art, music, wildflowers, and more. Attending an annual event is a good way to connect with the culture of the Gunnison Valley. You might even create a new tradition for you and your family and friends!
