Day Long Retreat
Unbounded Love and Compassion:
Going Beyond Words and Ideas
March 25, 2017
Dedicating ourselves to the highest welfare of beings, as demonstrated by masters of the past, may seem well beyond the grasp of us ordinary beings. Yet, this is the solution to the enmity being demonstrated by world leaders, corporations, and in our own hearts. As our natural state is love and compassion we need only uncover these qualities in ourselves to make significant change. Dedicating ourselves to the highest welfare of all beings is brought about through skillful practices and dedication. We can connect with the heart of spiritual altruism, going beyond the idea of enemy and friend, embracing all circumstances of this life starting right where we are here and now.

Dana Marsh and Lama David Curtis will teach together at the Bozeman Dharma Center.
A native Montanan, David Curtis has studied and practiced Tibetan Buddhism for over 30 years. In 1992, upon completion of a traditional Tibetan three-year meditation retreat under Kalu Rinpoche, he was named a lama. David teaches weekly classes in meditation and Buddhism at Big Sky Mind in Missoulla. With his compassionate attitude and warm, engaging teaching style, David makes Buddhist wisdom accessible and relevant to modern students.
For more information on him and his passion for the Tibetan language and teachings, please see his website here.
Dana Marsh has spent many years meditating and was ordained by Anam Thubten Rinpoche. Dana conveys the Dharma by sharing the non-conceptual, transcendent wisdom teachings pointing directly to the heart of the matter. She guides others to experience transcendent wisdom for themselves with love, humor, and devotion to the truth. She is the founder and spiritual director of Heart of the Dharma in Boise, ID, and a founder of the Compassion & Insight Center.
Dying to Live
April 22, 2017
Even though we all are subject to the death this is a topic of interest to only a few, especially in our American culture. There may be a perception that thinking about death is too depressing. This really isn’t the case. Actually, the teachings on death give us insight on how to live. Dana will be teaching from this perspective, sharing wisdom from those masters who have articulated this in the past and from those who have spent years working with the dying. This retreat is for all those who would like to gain a new perspective which will translate into change in every day life.
Time: Saturday April 22 – 9:30 – 4:00
Location: Compassion & Insight Center 1627 S. Orchard St. Suite 200
