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 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 they are attending.

To contact a guest in an emergency, call (802) 633-2384 x3207.

Please note that most cell phone networks other than Verizon do not get reception in this area.  Karmê Chöling does not have phones available for use by participants except in case of emergency.
