Notes and Events:

Dhamma Sukha Meditation Center  ( DSMC) and Anathapindikas Study Park Complex is located in the Ozark mountain forest near to Ironton, MO.  it is supported by the United International Buddha Dhamma Society (UIBDS).  The center offers one-on-one personal training and investigation retreats for two weeks at a time with Most Ven, Bhante Vimalaramsi and Ven. Sister Khema who train people in Tranquil Wisdom insight Meditation. This practice brings together again the practices of Serenity and Insight Meditation as they were originally given to us through the early Pali Canon.

The center is located on 102 acres of land about 13 miles outside of Ironton, Missouri. Presently (DEC-2010) the center has a capacity for up to 11 students in training at one time.  More residences are under construction.  there is vast support for this project around the world now.  The monastic area can train three people at one time  in a separate area and is growing.

The summer months of Rains retreat, usually July - October,  are best for training.  Retreats can begin as early as April if approved. Visiting monks present Pali classes, assist with research and writing, teach Buddhist history, and Sutta study is daily addressed  through Dhamma talks which students are encouraged to investigate.  Dhamma English is taught to monks and nuns here also. There is an active Ordination program for men and women.

This is a rustic environment where you will be asked to practice what you hear in Dhamma talks to confirm it when you see it. There are daily interviews with students.  There are outside and inside sitting and walking areas.

If interested in attending, you should contact Sister Khema. this year 2011 there will be two week limts for first time visitors. Times may later be extended on other visits upon approval by the Abbot. This practice is one you can take with you into life and it changes everything and brings back your smile according to the level of your understanding. It is great. It certainly wakes up your understanding of the Dhamma by tweaking whatever you have been practicing and is very useful.

Visiting monastics should contact Sister Khema to then be approved by Ven. Vimalaramsi for training and assistance. 

Contact us through the website for more information.

We look forward to hearing from you.

In the Dhamma
Ven. Sister Khema

Spiritual Director: Venerable Luang Por Samarn Saengsri  Email  
Notes and Events:

The sanctuary is located on eighty-five quiet, wooded acres away from paved roads and cell phone signals, a perfect setting for meditation practice. The Buddha said, “Here are roots of trees, here are empty huts – practice jhana! (meditation). Do not be negligent! Do not regret it later!”

Following the forest monastery tradition in Thailand, monks, nuns, and lay people reside and practice individually in kutis (small 8’ x 8’ cabins) which are spaced around the hillsides, using the sala (central meditation hall) for meals, dhamma study, chanting, and group meditation. The experience of aloneness and detachment, away from the hustle and bustle of the world, offers a rare opportunity to take his or her meditation practice and spiritual development to new levels. 

The sanctuary is maintained by two full-time resident anagarikas: Upasaka Eddie Rock and Upasika Janet Rock, who support visiting meditators by providing food, lodging, and meditation guidance if requested based on the fundamentals of Theravada Buddhist spiritual practice as originally taught by the Buddha 2,550 years ago.

We provide the opportunity for you to schedule your own time here, whether it is only a quick day visit or a long-term retreat.

For those staying overnight, taking the Eight Precepts is a requirement, which are the foundation of Buddhist training and a prerequisite to successful meditation practice.

Spiritual Director: Jill Rayna  Email  (Phone: 707-632-5589)
Notes and Events:

Our Vipassana Sangha, in the Forest Monastery tradition, practices mindful awareness within the awesome beauty of nature.  We practice being in the moment, in bare receptivity to all that arises, as we kayak in silence at sunset/moonrise on the Russian River, hike mindfully along a redwood canyon, or meditate beside a rushing sun-sparkled creek.

We practice in harmony with the elements and our bodily sensations, to cultivate non-conceptual Being (mindfulness), to realize the truth of our own nature. Just as the waters are ever-changing, as the trees and plants dance with the air element of wind, or as the sun appears and disappears through the clouds and coastal fog, we cultivate our awareness of impermanence, which is reflected in our constantly changing thoughts and feelings, and the arising and dissolving away of all forms.  We practice surrender to the moment as it is unfolding, without clinging to any particular object, thought, or sensation--allowing all to arise and pass away within the field of our non-judging awareness.

Dharma Creek Sangha currently offers one weekend womens sunset/moonrise kayak retreat each month, plus a week-long womens dharma camp in June.  The Sangha is located on 200+ acres of beautiful land which is available for guided or solo private retreats, and for small-group use by other spiritual groups upon request.
