DharmaCreek Sangha

Address:   Jenner CA 95450
Tradition: Theravada, Ruth Denison lineage / U Ba Khin
Affiliation: Dhamma Dena

Find on:
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.
