In March 2009, the Tibetan Buddhist monk and teacher Khen Rinpoche Lobzang Tsetan visited Colorado Springs and taught in a variety of settings. The turnout for and response to his talks, on the Colorado College campus and elsewhere, was so positive that Khen Rinpoche suggested to Natalie Morris and David Gardiner, who organized his visit, that they consider establishing a new, non-sectarian Buddhist center in Colorado Springs. A few months later, they founded BodhiMind Center.
BodhiMind Center is dedicated to exploring the Buddha’s teachings on liberation and compassion. While the Tibetan tradition is the root of our inspiration, our programs honor all paths of genuine spiritual transformation. We offer a year-round schedule of opportunities for study and practice. Our Calendar shows our ongoing meditation sessions, lectures, seminars, reading groups and other activities.
