Gar Drolma Buddhist Center was founded in 2002 by His Eminence Garchen Rinpoche, a high lama in the Drikung Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. The center has authentic Buddhist teachers, both in residence and visiting, who represent a pure and unbroken lineage of Buddhist training.
Our community center is dedicated to sharing and sustaining Buddhist teachings and practices, through the unbroken lineage of Drikung Kagyu teachers—and visiting teachers from other lineages as well. Our doors are open to all who seek a deeper, truer, more significant experience of life—from the general public to Buddhist practitioners of all levels.
We visit agencies in Ohio, bringing yoga and healing to individuals in their communities. We are currently serving youth in the Cuyahoga County Juvenile Detention Center, providing yoga classes which help young adults De-stress, increase perceptions of mental and physical energy, improve mood, and decrease negativity. The Mothering Wheel is continuously writing grant proposals to keep working in these agencies. Over the next year, we will expand our work with at risk youth, as well as other at risk populations in our community.
