Kurukulla Center

Management Committee

Thubten Damchoe - Translator

Damchoe trained at Kopan Monastery, Kathmandu, Nepal, the heart center of the FPMT and was a monk for more than 20 years. He came to Kurukulla Center as Geshe Tsulga's interpreter in 1999. In addition to his duties as translator, he is also working towards a Bachelor of Arts degree. We are very fortunate to have Damchoe as Kurukulla's translator, giving us access to Geshe Tenley's teachings with precision, dedication and humor. As well, the center benefits from Damchoe's many other skills including ritual arts and as chant leader at pujas leading with his deep, resonate voice. His email is damchoe@kurukulla.org.

Pat Venter

Sean González - Center Director (CEO), Director@Kurukulla.org

Sean joined Kurukulla in 2004 and quickly became an integral part of our community. His interest in developing community-driven initiatives motivated him to coordinate large center events, like the Elderhostel "Day of Discovery" programmes, the Maitreya Project Relics Tour visit, and a Center visit by His Holiness The 14th Dalai Lama. These events energized our community into high-gear participation and have been highly successful to expand Kurukulla’s services to a broader audience. As Director Sean is involved in all aspects of the center operations to execute the center’s myriad tasks and activities.

Therese Miller

Therese has been interested in Buddhism as well as other spiritual disciplines since her twenties. She started attending teachings in 1997 when Kurukulla was "housed" at the Friends Meeting House in Cambridge and she became a member shortly thereafter. For a number of years she volunteered at the Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archive.
