Practicing with friends on the path offers new commitment and vitality that refreshes your practice. Gentle Mindful Movement Practice, increasing body sensation awareness begins each session, and is followed by one of the themes below: • Rick leads in the Tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh, a Vietnamese Buddhist Monk, peace activist, author, and world renowned and beloved teacher. Meditation includes: an incense Gatha, Guided Meditation, Walking Meditation, Silent Meditation, Mindfulness of beloved ones, and the reading of one Precept. • Karen leads Guided Meditation on the Movement of the Breath, a Talk and Guided Visualization on one of the Four Immeasurables (Loving Kindness, Compassion, Joy or Equanimity), Group Discussion, Loving Kindness Meditation, and Dedication.

BodhiMind Buddhist Group

What we're about

In March 2009, the Tibetan Buddhist monk and teacher Khen Rinpoche Lobzang Tsetan visited Colorado Springs and taught in a variety of settings. The turnout for and response to his talks, on the Colorado College campus and elsewhere, was so positive that Khen Rinpoche suggested to Natalie Morris and David Gardiner, who organized his visit, that they consider establishing a new, non-sectarian Buddhist center in Colorado Springs. A few months later, they founded BodhiMind Center.

BodhiMind Center is dedicated to exploring the Buddha’s teachings on liberation and compassion. While the Tibetan tradition is the root of our inspiration, our programs honor all paths of genuine spiritual transformation. We offer a year-round schedule of opportunities for study and practice. Our Calendar shows our ongoing meditation sessions, lectures, seminars, reading groups and other activities.
