Kurukulla Center

for Tibetan Buddhist Studies

KURUKULLA CENTER IS RE-OPENING!

Kurukulla Center's new Director, Bryce Schintzius, has shared this wonderful news:

Dear Friends,

We are thrilled to announce that we will soon resume in-person activities at the Center! We have all been looking forward to this moment for a very long time.

As you are all aware, our beloved Center has been closed to the public since the start of the pandemic. Per Massachusetts regulations, it would technically have been possible to resume some in-person activities back in late March, though the layout of our physical space presents unique challenges.

We will begin a pilot program to allow in-person visitors at the Center, and we will also undertake a gradual return to in-person classes. Please understand that these visits will be organized in keeping with all state-mandated safety protocols, and there will be multiple precautions in place to protect our residents and all visitors.

VISITING HOURS / ONLY GOMPA WILL BE OPEN.

Every day from 10:00–11:00 AM and 2:00–4:00 PM

Maximum 10 persons at a time

OTHER INFORMATION

  • Restrooms, the book store, and other areas of the Center will not be accessible just yet, so please plan accordingly
  • Visitors will arrive and depart through the back porch door, which enters directly into the gompa. A tent has been set up to allow visitors to remove and store their shoes
  • Visitors will be asked to sign a guest register with their name and phone number in case contact tracing is needed and health screening questions will be posted as a reminder to all visitors
  • Visitors will be asked to wear a mask / face covering while inside

May all sentient beings be free from suffering and its causes.
