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 mornings, Wednesday and Thursday evenings. These wonderful classes include guided meditations and practical teachings. We also have a Tuesday evening class with LJ Aaen which is an 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 that cover 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, to away retreats during which we stay at a retreat center in the mountains. These relaxing and profound retreats help us create the space to more deeply contemplate and meditate on specific teachings.

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 at lunchtime and on Wednesday mornings and are free or by donation. We also have on-demand 30 minute meditations with Kadam Lucy James that 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 the 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 prayer booklets prepared by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso and published by Tharpa Publications.

Kids' Meditation Class

Currently on hold, but we will start up our Kids Meditation Class (5 – 12 years old) very soon! In these classes, kids learn how to meditate and are introduced to foundational Buddhist concepts through teachings and fun crafts and stories. For example, they learn 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

Soon we will once again offer 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
