The Hay River KTC Meditation Center was organized in 1997 as an affiliate center of KTD (Woodstock, NY). Our purpose is to make available to all who are interested the teachings and practices of the Karma Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddhism. We are, in particular, a retreat center for the Nyungne practice of Thousand-Armed Chenrezig. Our main teachers are His Holiness the Seventeenth Karmapa and Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche. We are located in rural west central Wisconsin just outside of Ridgeland.
We all have a spark of goodness in us, a powerful potential for developing warmth, openness, tenderness, sanity, and an incomparable sense of well-being and richness that cannot be approached by material or physical wealth and comfort.
Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche.
Eau Claire’s Buddhist Study Group will sponsor a series of weekly talks, meditation and discussion with Lama Yeshe, a monk in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. The Tuesday night series begins on June 7th and will be an ongoing event.

Nyungne Retreat - cancelled

Instead, we will be offering a day-long teaching event entitled “Dharma in Daily Life; Transforming Harmful Emotions” on Nov. 20th, from 10 AM to 4 PM.

Meditation class

Lama Yeshe will also be providing a meditation class on four Wednesday evenings, from Nov. 9 to Nov. 30th, from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM. The total cost of the class is $15. All events will be at KTC Hay River, near Ridgeland, WI, at N14085 County Road V V. Please see the attached poster for details.

Here is a video of a teaching Lama Yeshe gave at the Gainesville KTC 9/23-25.

The title is The Healing Power of Forgiveness . It is divided into many different sections and is over 10 hours in total length.

Our Center now provides the opportunity to make a lamp offering.

Because of the association with great good fortune, lamp offerings are made for any individual or family life event that is celebrated, such as the birth of a child, the marriage of a couple, the graduation of a son or daughter, the birthday of a friend, and the anniversary of one's parents.
