Wichita Karma Thegsum Chöling (KTC) is a Vajrayana Buddhist meditation group in the Tibetan Karma Kagyu tradition under the guidance of His Holiness the 17th Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje.

The center was founded in 1996 to create an authentic Tibetan Buddhist practice community in the Wichita area. We were founded under the direction of the Ven. Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche, the abbot of Karma Triyana Dharmachakra (KTD), a Tibetan Buddhist monastery and the North American seat of His Holiness the 17th Karmapa, in Woodstock, NY.

    • regular meditation practice
    • meditation workshops and individual meditation instruction
    • Buddhism classes and discussions of Buddhist teachings
    • visits from authentic Buddhist teachers
