KMC California is dedicated to serving the vibrant and diverse metropolitan city of Los Angeles and surrounding communities. Many classes, day courses and retreats are scheduled with Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong, who was recently requested to become the Resident Teacher atKMC CA and is the National Spiritual Director of the NKT in the USA.
Everyone is welcome to this peaceful oasis in the heart of the city. Visitors from all backgrounds come to find refuge from the difficulties of busy modern life, and draw inspiration from spiritual friends, including western Buddhist monks and nuns. In addition to a full spiritual schedule at the Center, classes structured for the general public are being offered in over 20 areas throughout greater LA.
Located near Silverlake, which is adjacent to Hollywood, the Center is easily accessible from several freeways. Suprisingly, it is tucked away in a quiet neighborhood just a few blocks from the Los Angeles River, providing a rare opportunity to walk and contemplate against the background of the flowing river. We invite you to stop by for lunch during the week or a cup of tea anytime! Everyone is welcome to visit and enjoy.
