Welcome to Karma Thegsum Choling (KTC) Athens. After over two years of activate involvement as a study group, the KTC Athens was established in October 2006.
We meet at 37 Ohio Street, in the building of the Factory Street Dance Studio. We invite you to join us (directions).

Weekly Practice Schedule
10 a.m.
Meditation and study of Tibetan Buddhism.

Our meetings include quiet meditation at 10:00, (40 minutes), then together we read and discuss material on Tibetan Buddhism in the Karma Kagyu tradition. Coffee, tea, and conversation are part of these mornings, too.

If you’re unfamiliar with meditation or Buddhism, that’s not a problem — we welcome newcomers and are happy to spend time with visitors to introduce these subjects and answer questions.
