Athens KTC meets every Sunday from 10:00 to 11:00. We have a rotating schedule of meditation and presentations. See the EVENTS page for what we are doing on a particular Sunday. We also offer meditation instruction.
If you need directions, please search on our new address; 8950 Lavelle Rd. Unfortunately, Google has been sending people to our old address.
We begin at 10:00am by sitting together in silent meditation. Cushions and chairs are provided, so you can be comfortable. The session is opened with the recitation of the refuge prayer. Then we either have a short or long meditation. Check our EVENTS page.
Once a month we sit in meditation for 20 minutes, then have a 20 minute presentation on a topic on Buddhism. The EVENTS page will have details on which topic will be presented.
Following this presentation, we complete the hour with group discussion where are all welcome to participate. This is a great opportunity to get to know the group and share your thoughts and questions.
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.
On a regular basis, we have the opportunity for a Lama or special teacher to offer us a teaching on a specific dharma topic. These occasions are an incredible opportunity to meet with and learn from skilled an experienced Buddhist teachers from our lineage.
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!
