His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama

The Way of Compassion Dharma Center is located in Carbondale, Colorado. Our sister Dharma center is the Here and Now Center in Gunnison, CO. We also serve a virtual sangha of distributed practitioners across the nation. We are a Rime (non-sectarian) Buddhist center dedicated to the cultivation of wisdom and compassion through the study of Buddhist Dharma. The Center’s primary objective is to provide programs of Buddhist studies and practices that are practical, accessible, and meet the needs of the communities we serve.

Over the years, we have cultivated a center and online community to make the precious teachings and practices as accessible as possible and to support integrating them into daily life. Though our primary lineage is in Tibetan Buddhism, we focus on foundational teachings and practices that are universal to all, whether one is a Buddhist or not.

Our Online Community

Our online community is free to everyone and offers resources, support, and connection to learn, engage with, and apply the Buddhist teachings of wisdom and compassion
