About Us


We are part of a worldwide network of over 600 Diamond Way Buddhist Meditation Centers in the Karma Kagyu tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. Lama Ole Nydahl and his wife Hannah, the first Western students of H.H. 16th Karmapa Rangjung Rigpe Dorje, founded and direct these centers under the spiritual guidance of H.H. 17th Karmapa Trinley Thaye Dorje. All of our meditation centers, and groups, are places where people interested in Buddhism can meet in an open and friendly atmosphere to study and practice the powerful and transformative methods of the Diamond Way. In addition to holding weekly meditations, we also host various teachers of the Karma Kagyu Lineage for public lectures and extended retreats throughout the year.
