Imagine the BENEFITS of a newly renovated center in Denver!
We started in Denver as Avalokiteshvara Center in 2000 as a branch of Heruka Center in Fort Collins, meeting in a rented room. We grew to the point that we could first purchase a house in Cap HIll and later lease a commercial space downtown; and the community has steadily grown over these past 21 years.
Thousands of Coloradans have walked through KMC Colorado’s doors to learn how to meditate and tap into their own inner source of happiness. In the past couple of years, we have strengthened our presence and purpose despite the disruption wrought by the COVID-19 pandemic. Our membership, the most important of our financial indicators, has increased steadily year by year.
We need a larger and more accessible Center that welcomes and supports a thriving and growing community of engaged practitioners, newcomers, volunteers, and visitors. We want to raise our profile to reach everyone who would like to learn about Buddhism or meditation, or who just needs to find some measure of peace and sanity in these challenging times. We have found the perfect spot!
“Regardless of background, anyone can benefit from Buddha’s teachings -- they are a tried and tested method for connecting us to our limitless potential, developing peace and happiness, and actually solving our own and others’ daily problems. Kadampa Buddhism is modern Buddhism -- Buddha’s teachings and meditation practices without any cultural or political overlay, presented in a clear, practical, and accessible manner. Because it is directly applicable to our modern daily lives and issues, and because people enjoy it, it is now being embraced not just here in Denver but in many cities in America and in over 60 countries.” —Kadam Lucy James, Resident Teacher of KMC CO
Of the 2.1 million dollars required to finalize the purchase and complete the renovation, we have raised most of it! What is missing is the final $300,000 dollars.*
We need your help to realize this vision to benefit the people of Denver and beyond. If you have received benefit from KMC CO and would like others to do the same, please contribute. If all of us contribute according to our own circumstances, this goal will be easily accomplished.
