Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche Annual Seminar
26th – 31st July 2024
Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche Annual Seminar
It is with great joy that we announce the forthcoming visit of our precious founder and teacher Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche to Gomde UK.

Registration is now open for this event. Please read the booking information carefully before registering. We look forward to seeing you all in the magical island kingdom of Lindholme Hall!

Seminar Schedule
The seminar will begin on the evening of Friday 26th July with a welcome talk from Khenpo Pema Nyamgal. If you are staying on-site, we kindly ask you to register between 2.30–4.30 pm on the 26th. The Seminar will conclude on the afternoon of the 31st July after lunch.

Rinpoche will teach on Ground, Path and Fruition

Rinpoche’s teachings encompass the whole of the Buddhist path. Rinpoche has a wonderful knack of focusing on those topics which are most pertinent to his audience.

Rinpoche will be teaching in the afternoons.
Khenpo Pema Nyamgal will be teaching in the morning.
Morning and evening practice will be led by our very own Lama Öser.

The Ngakso Puja will take place on Dakini day, Tuesday 30 July.

Rinpoche has kindly agreed to bestow the empowerment of Kurukulla, the semi- wrathful Dakini. This is particularly helpful for those wishing to attend the 3 Roots retreat with as Lama Tenzin, a three week retreat starting on 21September.
