A new center for KMC Colorado
Two years ago as Colorado was opening up again after COVID, KMC Colorado found a building full of potential, in a great neighborhood of Denver. After a year of designing and receiving permits, 2023 has seen us thoroughly gutting and renovating the whole building, all while keeping our spiritual program going, creating new branches, living in a temporary Dharma house, and setting up pop-up locations far and wide.
With a little over a month to go, volunteers have been installing flooring, repainting furniture, building a patio, and landscaping our gardens. Our new building will have a really spacious and light-filled meditation room, comfortable community areas both inside and out, a bookstore, a second meditation room, six rooms for residents, and a teacher apartment. The Center is located in the popular Slo-Hi neighbourhood of West Denver, just four blocks from Denver’s largest lake and park, Sloan’s Lake.
Permits permitting, our move-in date will hopefully be in December and our official opening will be in March 2024 with Gen-la Jampa giving the Bodhisattva Vow.
