News from DMC:  A July update from the Governing Council

What is Drala Mountain Center?

Nestled high in the Colorado Rockies, Drala Mountain Center (DMC) provides the perfect retreat setting for studying yoga, meditation and contemplative arts. DMC combines natural beauty, unspoiled wilderness, blue skies and crisp mountain air with the comforts of a modern retreat campus. Our accommodations range from fine lodge rooms with private baths to shared same-gender dormitories and economically-priced seasonal tents on wooded hillsides. Meals, with vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options, are included in lodging.

This is a place where many wisdom traditions are hosted, and we welcome all people inspired to explore the nature of self and society. Join us and enjoy our beautiful location and warm hospitality.

Drala Mountain Center Mission

At Drala Mountain Center, we are committed to creating enlightened society for future generations in two ways:

  • The first is to raise consciousness, reduce individual and societal suffering, and promote peace through strategic programming and education focused on mindfulness, social impact issues, and eco-dharma concerns.
  • The second is to fund programming for underserved populations designed to aid them in reducing their suffering so they can contribute more efficiently to their stakeholders.
