Programme 2019 - Gomde Lindholme Hall - The centre for Tibetan Buddhism in the UK

Programme 2019


Our range of programmes has again increased and we hope there will be something for everyone; those who wish to become acquainted with Buddhist ideas up to those wishing to undertake intensive retreat.
We are delighted that Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche will honour us with a teaching visit again this year. The seminar begins on the 21st and concludes on the 27th of August, and registration is now open. Places fill quickly so please book early to avoid disappointment! Rinpoche´s visits are always magical and filled with directly applicable insights to enable us to transform our limited mind into the mind of enlightenment. 
Lama Oser, our wonderful resident Lama, will be with us once again to guide, encourage and teach. Lama´s programme is not yet completed but we anticipate it will include short retreats of Green Tara and Vajrakilaya, continuing teachings from The Way of the Bodhisattva and a retreat on shamata meditation from a Tibetan Buddhist perspective. 
Please find below our present programme schedule - more programmes will be added as they are confirmed.

A Brilliant Sun - Stages of Practice of the Bodhisattvacaryavatara by Patrul Rinpoche
Khenpo Tokpa Tulku 
Khenpo Tokpa Tulku, a brilliant young Khenpo from Ka Nying Shedrub Ling Monastery, will guide us through Patrul Rinpoche´s instruction manual: how to study, reflect and meditate on one of the most significant texts on Bodhichitta - Shantideva´s The Way of the Bodhisattva.
This will be an experiential teaching to tame and train our mind and thereby allow the teachings to saturate our very being. We will offer an introductory week end, and also a more intensive week long seminar.
