buddhistretreatWelcome! Hartford Karma Thegsum Chöling is a Tibetan Buddhist study and meditation center located in Hartford, Connecticut. Established in 1997 by Executive Directors Kenneth Dusyn and Malou Dusyn, our mission is to provide a peaceful community where people from all walks of life are able to learn, study and practice the authentic teachings of the Karma Kagyu lineage.

We are affiliated with Karma Triyana Dharmachakra, a Tibetan Buddhist monastery and the North American monastic seat of His Holiness the Gyalwa Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje. The Karmapa is the spiritual head of the Karma Kagyu Lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. The Ven. Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche, abbot of Karma Triyana Dharmachakra, serves as the spiritual director of Hartford KTC.HartfordKTCusa-har-resized

In addition to a weekly Tuesday evening meditation and study group, we host visits by several Tibetan Buddhist lamas and teachers each year.
