Kadam Lucy James

Our main teacher at Kadampa Meditation Center Colorado is Kadam Lucy James, who is also the principal teacher of Kadampa Buddhism in Colorado. We feel very lucky to have her here as she is a close disciple of the founder of our Buddhist tradition, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, having first met him in 1981 and worked closely with him.

One of the senior teachers of Kadampa Buddhism, Kadam Lucy has taught extensively in England, Florida, and San Francisco, and helped set up many thriving Buddhist meditation centers in the past 34 years. She is regularly invited to teach courses around the United States and United Kingdom due to her skill in presenting both simple and profound subjects with great clarity.

Her main job for many years was also to help edit and produce Geshe Kelsang’s books. Until quite recently, she was on a long meditation retreat.

Kadam Lucy is appreciated for her deep experience, clear mind, and inspiring yet practical presentation of Buddha’s teachings and meditations, showing how to make these immediately effective in our modern daily lives. She teaches Tuesday evening meditation classes (Cap Hill), Wednesday evening Beginner Meditations (downtown), Thursday evening Meditations on the Path, Sunday morning Meditations for a Happy Life (downtown) Foundation Program, Teacher Training Program, and many other retreats and courses.
