Dear Sangha Members:
We are happy to announce that we will be offering our regularly scheduled services this Sunday and Losar Tuesday.
For the next two Sundays (2/7 & 2/14) and for Losar this coming Tuesday (2/9), Columbus KTC will be offering its full schedule at the McConnell Arts Center in Worthington located at 777 Evening Street (Corner of 161 & Evening Street), Worthington, OH 43085.
Many thanks to former director Erin Blue for securing the McConnell Arts Center (MAC) as a temporary location for Columbus KTC on Sundays. Looking ahead, we are exploring offers of temporary locations closer to downtown/Franklinton, but will use the MAC on Sundays in the meantime. (The location for Chenrezig Tuesdays is still being worked out, so stay tuned.)
Below are the schedules for this Sunday and next Tuesday. Specific classroom locations will be posted on entry doors Sunday morning and greeters will be present to help guide you.

Driving & Parking Directions
Take the 161 (Dublin-Granville Rd.) exit from Hwy 315 and head east. The MAC is just past Thomas Worthington High School on the corner of 161 (Dublin-Granville Rd.) and Evening Street. Enter the parking lot from Evening Street. Overflow parking, if needed, is available behind the High School. Signs will be posted.
A COTA option is the #2 bus which runs down High Street. The MAC is two large blocks west of High St on 161 (Dublin-Granville Rd).
A group of CKTC members created a rideshare group on Facebook, please click here for more information (or search CKTC Rideshares (Unofficial) on Facebook). This is not run or maintained by Columbus KTC, but rather is made up of regular attendees who want to coordinate rides.
We look forward to being together with everyone this Sunday. Thank you.
May All Beings Benefit.
