What we're about

This is an established group which hosts teachers from Tibet and holds an annual retreat in Hawaii.

These visiting teachers have led us on pilgrimage in China and Tibet, as well as American retreat grounds on the mainland. We gather together monthly in Honolulu to practice meditation.

Everyone is welcome. While profound, the teachings are clear and accessible to newcomers. The group is small enough that the connection can be very personal.

Khentrul Lodrö Rinpoche is the Abbott of Katog Choling Monastery in Tibet. He has been traveling annually to teach us in Hawaii for over a decade. has more information about the teachers and the group at an international level.

Please have a look at the photo albums on this MeetUp page - they show the scope of our activities.

You are welcome to join and develop understanding of Buddhist philosophy. You will find support here for your personal practice and meditation.

We have been meeting monthly at the Bodhi Tree Meditation Center. That structure is undergoing renovation, so we will not schedule any more MeetUp events for several months. If you have a suggestion for an alternative venue, please let us know. To read about the programs we hold between visits from teachers, click on the Discussions tab.
