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

Welcome to Kagyu Changchub Chuling!

Three Year Retreat Begins April 2015

Starting April 4th, 2015, KCC will offer a three-year retreat at our long-retreat center, Ser Chö Ösel Ling, in Goldendale, Washington. The retreat master will be KCC Resident Lama, Michael Conklin. He will be assisted by Lama Tara Goforth, of Victoria, British Columbia. KCC completed a successful one-year retreat for 13 retreatants at Ser Chö Ösel Ling in March 2014.

The three-year retreat curriculum will include practices of the Shangpa and Karma Kagyu lineages.

The gate sealing ceremony will take place the morning of April 4.

Events for the New Year

Three-Year Retreat Begins
In a year of change for the KCC community, the Three-Year Retreat begins in April 2015. The retreat center at SCOL will close its gates to all but the cloistered. Until then, keep a watch for opportunities to help out. Work parties on the retreat land near Goldendale, Washington, are frequent—and all are welcome. 

The Three Turnings 
“The Three Turnings of the Wheel of the Dharma” will be a major theme at KCC this year. These teachings provide a window into our profound intrinsic potential as well as a framework to see how study, contemplation and meditation can be cultivated and applied in the path of our life. The core of this series of teachings will be four Saturday workshops, beginning with an Overview of the Three Turnings on April 18. There will also be other classes and retreats to explore special topics and provide opportunities for practice.

The Seven Point Mind Training Study Group has begun again, thanks to Tim Campbell's organization and encouragement. The group meets on two Thursdays each month, from 7-8:30 pm at KCC. Please check the website for dates. You can also send questions to Tim, and he can get you on the list for future announcements. He usually sends out reminders and several commentaries on the Point to be discussed. This group is open to all and is not led by a teacher.

To keep well-informed, check out this page on the KCC website. Here you can sign up to receive our e-newsletter and occasional info on KCC happenings, or subscribe to the community list-serve—the community list-serve is more informal—a space where people post happenings, work parties, prayer requests, rooms for rent, job search information and more. KCC also has a Facebook page!
