Meditation & Study


Welcome to Kagyu Changchub Chuling, a center for Buddhist meditation in the Tibetan tradition. We offer a range of weekly meditation practice options to suit meditators at all levels. Each week, there are several opportunities to practice Shamatha meditation — a technique for developing stable attention — and vajrayana practices Chenrezi and Green Tara, which involve visualization and mantra recitation. Resident Lama Eric Triebelhorn offers guidance for each practice on a regular basis.
