2019 SenGen Announcements
What's new on the site since Aug 13, 2019?
The Durango Dharma Center offers the Senior Generation (SenGen) Kalyana Mitta (Spiritual Friends) Mindfulness Group. A place for those of us 60 and over who are interested in investigating the three messengers of aging, illness, and death that will visit us all, and in discussing all aspects of how to live a full and joyful life as we continue the journey. Join us as we delve into these exciting topics.
Our mentor is Katherine Barr, Dharma Elder.
Our group norms include:
•Connectedness, the very definition of a Kalyana Mitta or Spiritual Friend group, our need to feel connected, unspoken or otherwise, to others who are sharing the same experiences, helplessness and challenges
•Safety, the ability to share experiences and challenges in an environment where we will not be judged
•Privacy, the knowledge that what we say will not be shared with others outside this room
•Inclusivity, everyone 60+ is welcome, whether or not on a Buddhist path, and while Buddhist teaching may infuse the conversations, they are not central to our discussions
•Respect for each other’s personal preferences: for example, everyone is invited to speak, but it is not necessary to speak - many of us have personalities more suited to individual processing of knowledge gained in a session
We invite all within this age group to join us on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month from 3 to 4:30PM at the Durango Dharma Center, 1800 east 3rd Ave.
