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 meditation centers since 1981. She is regularly invited to teach courses around the United States and Europe due to her skill in presenting both simple and profound subjects with great clarity.

Upcoming Events

The Middle Way: Finding Freedom from the Eight Extremes

With Kadam Lucy James

Saturday, Dec. 11—Sunday, Dec. 12
(In person & online attendance available)

The eight extremes are eight ways in which out of ignorance we misapprehend reality. Due to this, we perceive ourselves to be in a state of painful isolation from others and our world. We see our limitations as real and we feel stuck, completely cut off from the extraordinary potential for limitless happiness, love, and freedom that exists within all of us.

Public Talk: Moving Forward—Discover the Future with Wisdom

With Kadam Lucy James

Wednesday, Jan 5th | 7:00pm - 8:15pm
(In person & online attendance available)

Now more than ever, many of us are experiencing unsettled minds. This past year especially, we have had an opportunity to become very aware of the impermanence of things and how uncertain and unpredictable life can feel.

Through learning to view and respond to things differently we can experience the transformative power of patience in general, and patient acceptance in particular– a vast and profound experience of calm that embraces challenges without being disturbed or harmed by them. It enables us to accept other people, ourself and our life yet at the same time have the clarity to move forward.
