Our Teachers


Gen Kelsang Chögyan is the Resident Teacher of Kadampa Meditation Centre Montreal. She has been studying and practising Kadampa Buddhism for over 20 years under the guidance of her teacher Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche. In a practical and accessible way, Gen Chögyan presents the methods that allow us to improve our human nature and our inner qualities so we can develop the capacity of our mind.

Her joyful presence inspires us to put meditation and Buddha’s teachings into practice with loving kindness.

Gen Kelsang Chögyan teaches the General Program classes in French on Monday and Wednesday evenings, as well as the Foundation Program [FP] and Teacher Training Program [TTP] (also taught in French). She also teaches various workshops and special events on the weekends, in addition to guided retreats.


Many inspiring teachers, ordained or lay, who are also students on the Teacher Training Program [TTP] or the Foundation Program [FP], teach classes at KMC Montreal or in surrounding areas in our branches. They all practice the buddhist path and are active and devoted volunteers at the heart of our community. Below are teachers who teach classes in English. For all teachers teaching in French, see Nos enseignants
