About the Event
If you have any additional questions, please email us directly at email@example.com. We rejoice in your interest in retreat!
On the auspicious Dakini Day, March 17, 2023, Gomde Pyrénées will continue our organized group retreat series under the guidance of Drubpon Tenzin Sangpo. The retreat is based on the text "Sphere of Refined Gold", a terma revealed by Chokgyur Lingpa with commentary by Jamgon Kongtrul Rinpoche. This practice is combined with a daily group practice of Vajrasattva.
To participate in the retreat one would ideally have received:
· the Vajrasattva empowerment in the Chokling Tersar Lineage
· teachings on Sphere of Refined Gold from Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche or another highly qualified master.
The minimum prerequisites are to have a strong foundation in Buddhist practice through both study and time spent in retreat, and to have received teachings on the great perfection from a highly qualified master. If in doubt, one should ask Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche if it would be beneficial to participate in the retreat. If you have additional questions about your eligibility, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will discuss them with Lama Tenzin.
We ask that ALL participants arrive at Gomde by the morning of March 14 in order to prepare their individual shrines and to participate in the orientation sessions. In order to accommodate individuals without Schengen visas, we will conclude the retreat on June 8. This allows people the ability to travel and stay within the 90-day limit of stay in France.
Applications for the retreat are now open. Everyone is required to fill out an application fully regardless of previous experience. We have a limited number of rooms available, and this retreat always fills up quickly. We ask you to use only that form to apply so that we can be fair to all who wish to participate. The three-month retreat is a fabulous way to prepare for the three year retreat if you aspire to do it in the future.
