Resident Teacher

The Resident Teacher at Atisha Kadampa Meditation Centre is Gen Kelsang Chogma.

Gen Kelsang Chogma has been practising and teaching meditation and Kadampa Buddhism for over 25 years. We are delighted that she has returned to her home town of Darlington!

Chogma was ordained as a Buddhist nun in 2009 by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche and serves as a wonderful example of the ordained way of life in the modern world. She is loved for her joyful enthusiasm and gentle skills in guiding meditations.
