Current Status at Gomde
We, like many others are so pleased that the Covid–19 threat has subsided and the figures of deaths and sickness have reduced considerably.  We note that the government are encouraging people to return somewhat to normal. Given the great uncertainty, we are taking a very careful and considered approach to keep ourselves and others as safe as possible.  
Gomde remains closed although we are now welcoming back our volunteers, with strict guidelines for social distancing, which means that some of the essential work here can be accomplished. We remain closed to all visitors.

For the next two months all our events have been cancelled; we are particularly sad to miss our community events this year which include the summer Fete and Kora Walk. 
We hope to soon resume our Tuesday Meditation Study Group via zoom. If you would like to join please contact paulette@gomde.uk. Please note places are limited.
Online Teachings
Khenpo Tokpa Tulku has kindly agreed to offer a sequence of teachings via YouTube over the coming weeks. These talks will focus on the Six Paramitas — View, Meditation and Conduct. Khenpo la teaches in an incredibly clear way, with direct and practical advice as to how to bring the teachings into our everyday experience.

Khenpo Tokpa Tulku has just concluded the teaching on View Meditation and Conduct. These teaching will now be followed by a series of Saturday talks. All teaching are available on our YouTube page. Khenpo will be providing a reading list to accompany the teaching and an overview document for reference, which will be available here soon.

Saturday Talks
We are particularly happy that while Khenpo is stranded here he has agreed to offer a weekly teaching which will be uploaded to YouTube every Saturday night. In the Saturday talks Khenpo will explore the topics already outlined in his previous talks but in further detail. Khenpo is happy to accept questions please forward to national@gomde.uk 

YouTube Teachings

In these unprecedented times, Khenpo’s teachings are bringing vital support and clarity. We are truly delighted that these wonderful talks are accessible to all. Please cherish them. Contributions (of any size) are welcome towards Khenpo’s travel and the running of our centre. With your support, we can continue to provide a secure and thriving base from which the authentic dharma can flourish.

Owing to the current extremely serious public health issues posed by the Covid-19 virus, Gomde Lindholme Hall closed to all visitors, guests and retreatants. All our events prior to July are cancelled or postponed. The Tuesday meditation study group will not meet until further notice.

We are all strongly advised to keep our contact down to a minimum for everyone to keep safe so please do not visit until the situation is resolved. We can be contacted by email and phone.
Please be aware that the caretaking group at Gomde is small, so your enquiries may not be answered immediately.

During this period, as well as keeping things ticking over, we will focus on study, reflection and meditation for the wellbeing of all.

We urge everyone to take the current situation as seriously as possible. As Dr David Shlim said, think of it as a war situation with the NHS as our army. Help the war effort! Every person who gets infected will infect, on average, two others — ten rounds of this cycle and from one person 2,000 people will be infected. Preventing infection for one person can therefore have a huge impact. For those of us in higher-risk groups, simple contact could be life threatening. Please be careful, vigilant and take best care for yourself and all others.

Thank you for your co-operation and support. May you all be safe and well.
