Karmê Chöling Meditation Community

Karme Choling is a residential meditation community founded by Tibetan meditation master Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche. It’s both a residence for meditation practitioners and a center that offers Shambhala Buddhist programs, QiGong instruction, Mudra Space Awareness, and Kyudo, or Japanese Archery. 

Living in a meditation community offers the camaraderie and support needed to deepen our practice and progress along our spiritual path as good human beings. 

Nestled in the beautiful green mountains of Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom, with a one-acre organic garden that teaches regenerative farming techniques, Karmê Chöling is part of the global community of Shambhala, dedicated to awakening our human hearts with kindness, bravery, and genuine dialogue.
