Come spend one or both weeks with Sean McNamara at Dharma Ocean Foundation's Blazing Mountain Retreat Center in Crestone, Colorado, June 14 to June 29. For more information on this wonderful opportunity to explore the deepest reaches of your being, click here. Those who attend our meetups on Tuesdays and Sundays are eligible to receive a special discount - ask Sean about it next time you attend. There are also scholarship and work-study opportunities available.
Tuesdays are open to anyone, newbies, visitors, occassional meditators, etc. These evenings are fully guided so they're a great opportunity to learn how to meditate. Those who attend on a consistent basis, over several months, will learn a variety of body-based and traditional sitting meditation practices. The teacher will use language that is accessible to anyone, regardless of background. You can sit in a chair or on a cushion, meditation works either way. It is very important that anyone who attend our group reads through the Orientation Page before their first visit.
We also do book discussions/potluck evenings. We're currently working with "Touching Enlightenment: Finding Realization in the Body" by Reggie Ray. Details and study questions are posted on our meetup page.
Our drop-in schedule will likely last into the spring or early summer of this year, until the next 3 month Buddhist Foundations teaching series begins (date TBD). This course teaches the foundational principles of Buddhism and introduces one to other aspects of our lineage. Those with a serious interest in dharma training will want to consider taking part in this at that time.
It is highly recommended that you create a free Meetup.com profile and join Meetup.com/DharmaOceanDenver (our public calendar) - this is how you can receive regular weekly schedule updates, and be part of the mailing list to hear from Sean or other community members.

Please RSVP on the event page for the evening you plan to attend and also read the detailed description for that evening, as sometimes there's a specific teaching or practice being introduced.
