July and August Series

Summer Dharma Jam:

Summer is here so let's celebrate & meditate! We are excited to present something different this Summer. Our Dharma Jam on Sunday mornings will be an inspiring and practical presentation of Buddha’s teachings by a superb line-up of new and old talent.

Senior KMC Colorado practitioners of all backgrounds, ages, and walks of life are going to share with you their own favorite practical advice from Buddha -- how they have used it in meditation and in their regular daily lives, how it has helped them, and how it can help you.

Every Sunday will be individual and different – and a huge amount of fun! Increase your inner peace and practical understanding of meditation, learn how to free your mind from the mental attitudes that hold you back from living your best life, and make the Summer of 2022 one to be remembered.

You are welcome to purchase each class individually or purchase the series of classes at a discount.

About the summer teacher line-up

This is an opportunity to receive advice, guidance and support from Buddhist practitioners or Sangha, who can share how they have successfully incorporated Buddhist meditation into their own jobs, relationships, families and other parts of their lives. Each teacher carries a wealth of personal experience and, throughout the series, will offer clear guidance and instruction on Buddha's teachings in a way that is down-to-earth, practical and inspiring.
