Taking time out every day to develop our minds is the foundation of every spiritual practice. Making new habits is not easy – busy agendas can intrude and fill our minds with distractions that prevent us from getting to our meditation seat. By reframing our daily meditation in terms of joy, we can keep ourselves encouraged and progress along our spiritual path

  1. I am wondering why you don’t have up your 2015 and/or 2016 calendar yet? I am trying to find a buddhist center or meditation group with some lineage to practice at.
    I would be interested in checking out your group.
    I also wonder if you offer refuge occasionally or bodhisattva vows, etc type gatherings?
    I see you donate food scraps etc to Farm Sanctuary and I am staunch vegan and love that you do that, I wonder what your teachers take on veganism/vegetarianism is or if you have a stance? I saw you are trying to give up meat, yay. I look forward to more info on your lineage and your group.

    Thank you,

    • Hi Rachelle,

      Our calendar goes out through our newsletter on a monthly bases and I have added you to it, hope that’s ok?

      Our lineage is Karma Kagyu under His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa and in connection with his monastery Karma Triyana Dharmachakra in Woodstock NY.

      We do have at least to visiting Lamas’s per year who give teachings in our centre and on that occasion give Refuge and Bodhisattva Vows.

      His Holiness strongly supports and vegetarianism specifically in all his monasteries but also for all his students.

      Let me know if you got the schedule.
