Find the Class That’s Right for You

Everybody Welcome! Todos Bienvenidos!

Weekly Classes

We offer a wide variety of weekly classes, most of which are drop-in and suitable for all levels of practitioner. Our Resident Teacher Kadam Lucy James teaches on Sunday morningsWednesday and Thursday evenings. These wonderful classes include guided meditation and practical teaching. We also have a Tuesday evening class with LJ Aaen which is excellent class for all levels.

Weekend Events

Our weekend program includes beginners’ workshops—which are ideal for making some headway into meditation—, special one-time courses, and mini-retreats covering particular Buddhist themes. These are usually open to all levels of practitioner, but check each event’s page for details. These practical courses and workshops allow us to delve deeper into different areas of Buddha’s teachings and meditations.

Meditation Retreats

We offer meditation retreats that range from half day retreats on Saturdays, to full weekends, and also away retreats where we stay at retreat centers in the mountains. These relaxing and often profound retreats help us create the space to more deeply contemplate and meditate on specific teachings and gain deep experience.

Simply Meditate

Looking for a relaxing, short and peaceful guided meditation? Our simple 30-minute meditations are an enjoyable way to ease into meditation. These are currently offered on Tuesdays afternoons and Wednesday mornings and are free or by donation. We also have on-demand 30 minute meditations with Kadam Lucy James you can access anytime you wish!

Study Programs

For those wishing to go deeper by studying and practicing more systematically, KMC CO offers the Thursday In-Depth  Meditation Series and Teacher Training Program. These require enrollment and regular attendance.

Meditation Prayers

We also offer regular sessions of meditation prayers throughout the week, each comprising prayers in English and silent time for meditation. All the essential practices of Kadampa Buddhism are included in a series of sadhana booklets prepared by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso and published by Tharpa Publications.

Kids Meditation Class

Currently on hold, when we start up in-person classes again, we will continue to offer a Kids Meditation Class (5 – 12 years old)! Kids learn how to meditate and are introduced to foundational Buddhist concepts, through teachings and fun crafts and stories, like: how to connect to a sense of inner peace, how to identify with their astounding potential, how to develop compassion and gratitude for others, and how to let go of agitating states of mind such as anger.

All Over Colorado

When we can meet again in person, we hope to continue offering drop-in classes at branch locations in Cap Hill, Lakewood, Boulder, Colorado Springs, and Evergreen; as well as public talks at places such as the Wash Park Boathouse and Denver Art Museum. 

Kadampa Festivals

Every year the New Kadampa Tradition ~ International Kadampa Buddhist Union (NKT~IKBU) organizes regional and worldwide Kadampa festivals—gatherings on Buddhism and meditation that explain how to apply Buddha’s teachings (Dharma) to modern life. These include International FestivalsNational Festivals, and regional Dharma Celebrations
