Reflections on the Practice by Sangha Members
Don began meditating at the Broken Ridge Temple in 2012. He is now 66 and retired from his life as a mineral economist 13 years ago. He and his spouse, Mary, reside in Durango, in the mountains of Southwest Colorado.
Joan joined the sangha in 2000, not long after the sitting group started at the Temple in 1999. Since then, she has gone to Burma three times on long retreats. She retired in 2013 from the public school system as a speech pathologist. In retirement, she’s been pursuing her interests in painting, alternative health, and volunteering in the prison system.
