    Located in the forested mountains of the Pyrénées Orientales, a retreat centre surrounded by breathtaking nature and lofty views. As a backdrop, the Catalonian sacred mountain 'Pic du Canigou', steeped in mystery and legend, is a protected natural heritage site. In the distance the view of the Meditterranean. This retreat centre is remote yet easily accessible, it offers silence and natural beauty and is ideal for meditation retreats. It is run by volunteers, who share in their wish to practice meditation and contribute towards a supportive buddhist community. We welcome people from around the world to retreat here.

    A place of retreat where the mind can be free from distraction. A natural sense of freedom and openness. The nature, beauty of the views, changing seasons and vast skies. There is equality amongst volunteers living here. Warmth of heart and sincerity are alive, and our kitchen and wholesome good food will make you feel at home!

    Twice daily, In the morning and in the early evening - there is group meditation practice which you are welcome to join. We often hold seminars and organise retreats on buddhist topics where you can gain inspiration and learn from the visiting teachers, who are internationally renowned and respected in the Tibetan lineage tradition. You are welcome to join these free of charge when living and working at Gomde.

    It is also a perfect place for anyone who enjoys and feels inspired by outdoor activities such as biking, running, hiking and just being in nature, and who is happy to spend time in the peace of the environment.

    The retreat centre is run by volunteers, who share in their wish to practice meditation and contribute towards a growing community. We welcome people from around the world to reteat in this serene environment. Volunteers at Gomde adopt a lifestyle of balance between relaxation, meditation, and work activities.

    UPCOMING PROJECTS - we will hold a traditional buddhist 3 year retreat here in 2021 and are currently renovating 3 old country houses for this purpose.


    PROFESSIONAL CARPENTERS or EXPERIENCED JOINERS - feel welcome to stay here and share your knowledge, we would like to learn from your skilled experience.

    BRICK-LAYERS or artisans of any kind who wish to live and work in an independant and self-sufficient way, whilst enjoying a period of peace and insight into this Tibetan buddhist community.

    LANDSCAPING / GARDENING - we would love to establish our garden in a way that it becomes maintenance free, where the types of plants we include will naturally deter the growth of weeds.

    HOW TO OPERATE A DIGGER? We will be purchasing a digger and need to learn more about its operation, for levelling our grounds, and for preparing water pits for a water purification system.

    If you have experience in any of these areas we would love to welcome you, but also if you wish to share in our household, kitchen / other areas of community service, we would be very happy to hear from you.

  • Unterkunft


    Our accomodation is basic but comfortable, we can mostly offer a single room, hut or cabin, depending on the number of people staying here at the time of your stay with us. During the busy period in the summer we might ask you to stay in a teepee or a tent.

    As a buddhist community we refrain from consuming meat , alcohol, or intoxicants of any kind. If you have any specific dietary needs, please let us know, I am sure our wonderful cook can accomodate your needs if we know ahead of time.

    Everyone who visits Gomde especially praises the excellent kitchen & good wholesome cooking, and feel at home in the warmth and kindhearted sincerity of the volunteer residents here.

    The place is quite remote, so the main entertainment is the forests, mountains, walks in the nature, company of kind hearted people. There are amazing hikes in the region. We are very close to the beautiful "pic du Canigou". Hiking and biking are possible from our main house, no need to drive (bring your own bike if you wish).

    La Bastide village is within walking distance and you can visit this beautiful tiny neighbouring village (about 20 mins walk). Public transportation is very limited, but there is a bus from Perpignan that runs on thursdays and saturdays, and a bus every day to Amelie les Bains.

    We have a neighbour friend who can be your taxi driver - he is happy to pick you up by prior arrangement for a very reasonable price, to either fetch or take you to Perpignan/Girona or Barcelona if needed.
