Where do I begin at KSC?

You are invited to these introductory events to meet the lamas and the KSC community.

Newcomers’ Night

In early Fall, Winter and Spring, the lamas host Newcomers’ Night as an introduction to KSC activities. The evening begins with Calm Abiding Meditation at 6:00 p.m. Following the meditation, the lamas and a few community members provide a brief overview of the programs offered at KSC. All are welcome. The next Newcomers’ Night will be held on Thursday, April 27, 2017.


You do not need to attend Newcomers’ Night to enter the KSC community! All the meditations listed below are recommended for those who are exploring KSC. Each practice contains instruction in a particular meditation, as well as a talk on Buddhism by one of the lamas. These meetings also offer an opportunity to meet others in the KSC community.

  • Calm Abiding meditation, Thursdays at 6:00 p.m. in Ashland
  • Tonglen and Calm Abiding, Sundays at 9:00 a.m. in Ashland
  • Chenrezig, Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m. in Ashland
  • Green Tara, Tuesdays at 7:30 a.m. in Ashland
