Retreat Hut - Gomde Lindholme Hall - The centre for Tibetan Buddhism in the UK

Retreat Hut

The Lindholme Estate is large and very secluded, creating a perfect place for solitary retreat.
Following the guidance of Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche we have created a prototype retreat hut which is now available for practitioners who wish to undertake serious retreat.

The retreat hut is located within a secluded woodland setting chosen by Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche.
The design is simple and well insulated with basic amenities. It has a large window overlooking the woodland with screened porch area for outside meditation, a small wood burning stove, a kitchenette (with small gas hob) and a compostable toilet. The hut is ´off the grid´ and has no electricity and solar lights are supplied. 
Supplies can be ordered and delivered through Gomde once a week, and weekly washing is possible.There is no shower at the hut but it is possible to use the camping showers.
 
A kind benefactor has offered an annual, 1 month bursary for the retreat hut. If you would like to undertake a 1 month´s retreat but have difficultties meeting costs please contact Paulette at national@gomde.org.uk to apply for the bursary.
