Dharma Sangha Boulder is a Zen Buddhist practice center located in central Boulder, Colorado. The center owns the Briar Rose Bed and Breakfast, and we have a zendo (meditation room) at the B&B. Dharma Sangha is the lineage of Richard Baker Roshi, Dharma Heir of Shunryu Suzuki Roshi, and we are formally affiliated with the Crestone Mountain Zen Center, Dharma Sangha’s monastery on Crestone Mountain in Southern Colorado.
The heart of our practice is our daily meditation (zazen) schedule. We also practice a chanting and bowing service every weekday morning. In addition, the center sponsors a number of Zen practice seminars each year, as well as other practice events such as Sangha work days and potlucks.
Our Head Teacher is Richard Baker Roshi. Ryokan Gary Hardin, a long-time student of Baker Roshi is the Head of Practice (Tanto) in Boulder. Please see our calendar for a listing of the events scheduled for this year that are in addition to our daily practice schedule.
All of our practice is held in our Zendo at the Briar Rose, with the exception of two annual seminars with Baker Roshi, which are held at the Chautauqua Community House at the base of the mountains in Chautauqua Park (about 2 miles from the Briar Rose).
