Ruth‘s Enduring Legacy Fund

Gone, gone, gone beyond...Thank you, dear Dharma-Mother for having graced our lives...inspiring us, too, to Grace-ness. And thanks for a beautiful death that allowed all of us who cherished you to prepare ourselves for your tender departure. Only your physical body—that source of such dukkha—has departed. You live ever more vital in our hearts, as we carry on in your stead. Sadhu, sadhu, sadhu!

Ruth passed away quietly at 3am PST, February 26, 2015 at her Joshua Tree home, surrounded by loved ones. 


While our beloved Ruth has left her body, her work continues. We are excited about the opportunities to continue to grow Dharma practice by continuing to offer teachings and retreats at Dhamma Dena, which was Ruth's great wish.

The Mojave Desert is both awesome and harsh, and the weather extremes do take their toll on the physical plant, necessitating ongoing repairs and maintenance. This Enduring Legacy Fund will be used to upgrade, modernize, and maintain Ruth's beloved center, so that it can continue to offer her particularly effective methods of mindfulness training to the next generation of students.

Be part of this Noble Effort, and join with all of us who want to honor Ruth's dreams.
