About Lama Kathy

Lama Kathy serves at the Columbus Karma Thegsum Chöling Meditation Center as its practice coordinator, and travels to other Buddhist centers throughout the country to teach.

Lama Kathy has been a student of Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche since 1977. She participated in the first three-year retreat led by Khenpo Rinpoche at Karme Ling Retreat Center in upstate New York, and thus earned the title of “retreat lama.” She is a graduate of Ohio State University with a bachelor's degree in journalism and lives in Newark, Ohio with her husband, Michael.

May 2009 update note:

Quite a few new printable files have been added to the Resources section, plus a video showing the hand mudras for the Chenrezik sadhana. Lama Kathy’s travel schedule appears on the Scheduling page now, and more to come soon.

May all beings benefit throughout space!
