Once a month KMC Bloomington does a deep clean throughout the Center — this is called Center Cherishing Day. If you are unable to attend on that day, please feel free to reach out about our weekly and monthly cleaning activities. See volunteer opportunities in our administration and education departments below as well.


"All Kadampa centers are dedicated to all living beings. They belong to them, remaining in their service for all time,
and can never be taken over by individuals or organizations and used for other purposes." -
Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche


For this reason, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche says that these centers are very precious and that whenever we engage in an action to benefit a center we are in fact benefitting all living beings. Through such actions we accumulate vast merit, purify negativities, and receive powerful blessings

KMC Bloomington is a nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing peace and happiness to Bloomington and the surrounding areas. We aim to teach people how to develop pure, positive states of mind, giving practical tools to transform the difficulties of everyday life into opportunities for personal growth and transformation using modern Kadampa Buddhism and meditation. 


Our Center runs on volunteers. When we come together there is power, and this power creates change through meditating together, building community and envisioning what can happen when we are happy cherishing others. We accumulate good fortune, a positive state of mind, and we support a peaceful place of refuge for others to enjoy. 

Volunteer opportunities are available in the education and administrative departments.  Some volunteer areas for each department are listed below. If you have an interest, please speak to Nancy, Administrative Director, at the Center or email about what inspires you.
