Dharma Centres

Also read the Finding a Teacher section for more information.

The below reputable centers are from the Karma Kagyu lineage of the Vajrayana school of Buddhism. There are many other reputable centers from this lineage and others across the globe.

The benefits of finding a Dharma Center as opposed to a non-secular center that hosts visiting teachers from any teaching or tradition is depth of practice. A Dharma Center from a particular lineage/ school will often have a resident teacher and community who invests in supporting their students’ development and unfoldment along the path.

The key is to find a teacher and teaching that sparks your curiosity and thirst for knowing more. And once you do, hang on tight for the ride.
