The Columbus KTC offers a regular weekly schedule of meditation practice and classes open to the general public. Meditation instruction is available to everyone. Throughout the year, KTC hosts lamas and monks who give teachings and instructions on practice, and who offer the refuge ceremony for those who wish to practice formally as Buddhists.

For formal practitioners, the center also provides a schedule for special practices each week. The center features a large meditation room for group practice, and a traditional Tibetan Buddhist shrine. Books, incense, and other practice materials may also be obtained at the center.

The center is host to resident teacher Lama Kathy Wesley, a long-time student of KTC founder, Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche. Lama Kathy was a member of the first group of Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche's students to complete a traditional three-year retreat at KTD's upstate New York retreat center, Karme Ling.
