Kagyu Changchub Chuling

A center for the practice and study of Vajrayana Buddhism founded by His Eminence Kalu Rinpoche


Welcome to Kagyu Changchub Chuling!


Bodhisattva Celebration

Please join us for a time of sharing as we reflect on what it means to follow the bodhisattva path. This year we will join together via Zoom on Saturday, December 12, from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM as we continue to care for each other by observing social distancing and avoiding indoor gatherings.

This event aims to enrich the relationships between both younger and older community members at KCC. For those of you who are new to this event, the theme of the evening is all about bodhisattvas, in our own tradition as well as others, and is often done in imaginative and creative ways. A bodhisattva is someone whose thoughts, words, and actions are filled with compassion (the wish to alleviate the suffering of others) and loving-kindness (the wish that all beings experience happiness). By our own small acts of kindness — toward every single being — we emulate the bodhisattvas.

New Year's Retreat and Refuge Ceremony 2020/21

KCC has the tradition of holding a short retreat over the turning of the new year. This year the schedule is expanded a bit and we will incorporate the main practices that we engage in at the center. In the morning and early afternoon we will practice shamatha and the bodhichitta practices of loving kindness, compassion, and sending and taking. For the last session of the day, we will do Chenrezi and a short Tara practice.

At 11:00am on January 1st, there will be a refuge ceremony for anyone who has not taken refuge before. Taking refuge is the formal step of becoming Buddhist. If you have done so already in another tradition, you needn’t take refuge again. You do not have to participate in the retreat to take refuge. If you are interested in doing so, please contact Linda Grove with your contact information including full name.

A Message to the Sangha

Greetings to all of our KCC community,

This letter serves to update you on how the Covid-19 pandemic is impacting KCC's programming and financial situation.

Enhancing Programming
We had a robust program of events scheduled for 2020. But when the implications of the virus became apparent, KCC was quick to make the painful decision to suspend in-person gatherings, including our Spring Personal Retreats at our retreat land. Nearly every aspect of KCC’s operations has been impacted—from programs to committee work to facility maintenance and more.

Lama Eric Triebelhorn, KCC's Resident Teacher

Lama Eric Triebelhorn’s return to KCC opened a new chapter in his remarkable Dharma journey. He found his way to KCC 25 years ago and enthusiastically embraced the Buddhist training and service that would become his life. After a 17-year sojourn in India filled with study, retreat, and translation, he began service as Resident Teacher at the beginning of 2020.
