Dhamma Dena, a Vipassana Buddhist center,  was founded almost forty years ago by pioneer Buddhist teacher Ruth Denison, one of only four westerners initiated as a teacher by the eminent Burmese meditation master Sayagi U Ba Khin.  The Center is named for Dhammadina, a female disciple of the Buddha, and is situated in the Mojave Desert of California, near Palm Springs and Joshua Tree National Monument. 

Dhamma Dena offers daily meditation in the dharma hall, as well as offering several retreats each year.  Ruth Denison created an enduring and unique method of practicing Vipassana, focused on mindfulness in every moment, with the attention always to this present moment, as experienced directly through the movement and sensations of the body.  This  unique style of Vipassana meditation has influenced most of the contemporary Theravada teachers in the West, who now incorporate some form of mindful movement into their retreats. This style of teaching remains the hallmark of our center, and is carried on by her appointed teachers, with the same beautiful benefits to all who join us to practice here...

Visitors are always welcome for daily meditation or formal retreats.  Dedicated dharma practitioners who are able to be self-sufficient and independent may contact the center to arrange for personal practice time here, after discussing your needs with the staff.  Feel free to contact the Center about the possibility of a visit.

The aim of the society is to conduct Vipassana discourses annually as well as to perform various religious activities under the guidance of our Venerable Chanmyay Sayadaw. The main aims are as follows.

1. To create a meditation center for the yogis to practice meditation any day whole year round.

2. To have residing Sayadaws who can teach Vipassana meditation in English, Burmese and Chinese.

3. To conduct teaching sessions on Buddhism, Burmese tradition and Culture, and Myanmar language to overseas Myanmar children.
