Reaching a Guest

It may be difficult to reach a program participant by phone, so we recommend that you coordinate a specific time to call. The reception desk can also take phone messages and post them on the program bulletin board. If you would like to write a letter to a guest, please include the participant’s full name and the name of the program he or she is attending.

If you are coming for a program or residency, please note that most cell phones (those not on the Verizon network) do not get reception in this area. Karmê Chöling has two phones for general use, but they do not have long-distance service. To make long-distance calls, bring a calling card with you, or purchase one at our store.
