Rangjung Yeshe Gomde Pyrénées
Rangjung Yeshe Gomde Pyrénées is a Buddhist retreat center founded by Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche, located in the Pyrenees mountains in the south of France. Gomde is both remote and easily accessible, and graced with silence and stunning natural beauty.
We offer opportunities for self-guided individual retreat as well as organized group retreats and seminars. A combination of retreat and volunteering is also possible.
If you wish to visit us for a day, please read the information here. We have a daily morning and afternoon group practice that visitors are welcome to join, as well as various online practice opportunities.
Please enjoy this video from Rinpoche's last visit in September 2022.
In the video above, Rinpoche shares his advice about three-year retreat. We can all rejoice that the first three-year retreatant successfully started in the summer of 2022!
"When we are suffused with compassion in what we do, then definitely we are perfect practitioners."
- Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche
