Welcome to all things Lama Kay C, things I’ve been doing throughout my life but that haven’t been shared much beyond the community of close friends and small Buddhist sanghas. Scrolling through this site, you just might find something that resonates with you or that you thoroughly enjoy.


This is my personal website.

In this way the name is doing double duty.

While I’ve taught Tibetan Buddhism for decades now and am featured on the website of Open Awareness Buddhist Center (www.miamibuddhism.org ), this site is for sharing other aspects of my life, those that can be gleaned from the titles of the site pages: photography, music, poetry, prose. There’s more, of course, but these are a good start.

My hope is that you enjoy the site and possibly become inspired to foster all aspects of your own life and talents.
