Welcome to Gomde Pyrénées

An international retreat centre located in the Pyrénées mountains

Gomde Pyrenees is located in Mas Can Pere Courreu in the beautiful French Pyrenees. The closest village is La Bastide, home to a friendly and small community of farmers and artisans.

The retreat house is perched against a backdrop of magnificent mountains, and enjoys views of both sacred Mount Canigou and the Mediterranean Sea.

The centre offers long and short term retreats based upon the complete Buddhist path as found in the teaching of the Buddha, the Mahayana teachings on emptiness and compassion, and the profound instructions of the Vajrayana.

Gomde Pyrénées is loved by practitioners from around the world for retreats in sublime nature and perfect solitude.

The centre is founded by Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche, in the lineage of the Chokling Tersar, a collection of teachings revealed by the 19th century master Chokgyur Lingpa.

“I have sincere aspirations that in the future the Gomde centres will become great places for dharma practice that will give birth to countless learned and accomplished beings.”
