Visit Us for Meditation

We welcome you to join us for meditation, tea, and teachings

Athens KTC meets every Sunday morning at 10 am  to meditate and to study Tibetan Buddhism. We meet at 37 Ohio Avenue, in the building of the Factory Street Dance Studio. We invite you to join us. 

If you’re unfamiliar  with meditation or Buddhism, that’s not a problem — we welcome  newcomers and are happy to spend time with visitors to introduce these  subjects and answer questions. No need to bring anything special.  Mats and cushions are available at the Center for your use.

See our current class schedule.


What to Expect

Shinay Meditation

 (tranquility meditation) We sit for 20 minutes, break for walking  meditation for 10 minutes, then sit for another 20 minutes. Newcomers  are always welcome, and an introduction to the basics of meditation is  offered at no charge. 

Tea and Visiting

 After meditation, join us for coffee, tea, and snacks.  Our tea time lasts for approximately 15 minutes and is a great opportunity to ask questions and get to know others in the Athens KTC community.

Basic Buddhism Classes, Study and Discussion

 Sundays at 11:15am, we study Buddhism, with questions and discussion. (Except the first and last Sunday of each month.  See Chenrezik Practice and Planning Meeting information.) 

Chenrezik Practice

 On the first Sunday of each month, instead of studying we chant the Chenrezik sadhana, a prayer of compassion.  All are welcome and no special knowledge is required.

Planning Meeting

On the last Sunday of each month we meet after tea  to discuss the events and priorities of the Athens KTC.  All are welcome to attend.

Weather Emergencies?

The only time we are not open on Sunday is when the Athens County Sheriff issues a Level 2 or higher snow emergency.  Please stay home and stay safe if the weather is not cooperating!
