Karma Thegsum Chöling Southern California

Formerly known as Santa Monica KTC, we are a Buddhist Meditation and Study center that follows the Karma Kagyu Lineage of Tibetan Buddhism.

We have provided meditation and Dharma teachings in Los Angeles for over two decades and extended our reach to Southern California and beyond. We offer online teachings every Thursday, led by various Lamas, along with group practice and book study sessions. Moreover, we conduct in-person and Zoom meditation classes every first and third Saturday and an in-person group practice monthly. 

In addition to our regular classes and sessions, we host special in-person teaching events throughout the year, inviting various teachers.
