We’re delighted to announce that Lama Kathy will be teaching at KTC Jacksonville Wednesday October 14 & Thursday October 15! She has not taught at KTCJax in a number of years and we are very excited to welcome her back!

Lama Kathy Wesley (Gyurme Chotso) has studied with Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche since 1977. She participated in the first three-year retreat led by Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche at Karme Ling Retreat Center in upstate New York, and thus earned the title of ‘retreat lama.’ Lama Kathy serves at the Columbus Karma Thegsum Choling (Ohio) as its resident teacher, and travels to other Buddhist Centers throughout the country to teach. She is a graduate of Ohio State University with a bachelor’s degree in journalism. She lives in Newark, Ohio with her husband, Michael. She is also on the Board of Trustees at KTD.

Training in Compassion: The Seven-Point Mind Training
We all treasure the ideals of love and compassion, but may feel we lack the “how” instructions – how do we engender and nurture love and compassion, and bring them to fruition?

The Tibetan Buddhist tradition has a number of teachings on this topic – teachings called “Lojong,” or “mind training.” One of the more celebrated “how-to” manuals on love and compassion is “The Seven-Point Mind Training,” which was written in the 12th Century. In it, author Chekawa Yeshe Dorje tells us how to develop mindfulness and compassion in a logical, easy step-by-step format that is easy to understand and practice.

Because this special visit by Lama Kathy is during the week, we adjusted the teaching schedule so that more people can attend due to work schedules.
