We offer these protocols in the spirit of valuing all life as sacred. We hope these guidelines can keep us all safe and well as we come together to practice and overcome this time of collective challenge together.
An overview of our retreat center and the agreements we follow in order to provide a supportive environment for all to practice.
Agreements for Multicultural Interactions
We invite everyone who comes to stay at Dhamma Dena to uptake the practice of these agreements in order to build a safe and respectful environment across all our differences.
Be Fragrance Free
In an effort to be inclusive and practice compassion, we request that all participants who attend daylongs, events and residential-retreats to please refrain from wearing scented products.
Your Dog & the Dangers of Open Desert
We strongly discourage people bringing their dogs. Dhamma Dena is in the open desert with quite a bit of wildlife including rabbits, coyotes, wild dogs and rattle snakes and the possibility of them being harmed in unfamiliar surroundings is high.
