Ozarks Dharma Community is a Buddhist Meditation Group in Springfield, MO, composed of informal and diverse practitioners. We are dedicated to sharing the Buddha's teachings in a practical way. All are welcome.
We are happy to announce that we will be having a one-day retreat on Sunday, October 26th, at the beautiful Little Portion Retreat Center in Republic. The retreat will begin at 9 am and last until 4 pm. If spending the entire day is not feasible, you are free to come in the morning and stay until lunchtime. A $15 donation is suggested, but no one will be turned away due to a lack of funds. Bring a brown bag lunch--a kitchen with refrigerator and microwave is available for our use. We will have blankets, two meditation benches and a small number of cushions available, but you are welcome to bring your own. There are many places outside to practice sitting and walking meditation, so you may want to bring whatever you need to sit outside comfortably. Holly will give a brief talk in the morning after our first group sitting, but the rest of the day you will be free to practice in whatever way you choose, until we come together to sit one last time around 3:30 pm.
