Tashi Gomang Stupa
Located high above Colorado’s San Luis Valley, with a spectacular view of surrounding mountain ranges, the 42-foot tall Tashi Gomang Stupa is a spiritual monument built on 200 acres of pristine natural beauty, open feely to the public since 1996.
A retreat is a chance to find space and spaciousness in the immensity of nature, to observe how all things interrelate, to understand that your motivation is not merely for your own well-being, but an aspiration for the well-being of others, a genuine compassion for all.
For over forty years, we at KTTG have dedicated ourselves to implementing the vision of the 16th and 17th Karmapas. Our organization of dedicated volunteers and sponsors, young and old from all parts of the world, have worked tirelessly over the years to build a place of peace, to care for a protected environment, and to foster a natural haven for contemplation, wonder and practice.

I also wasn’t sure how well I’d be able to sustain practice being a beginner without much meditative stability. I was pleasantly surprised that the practice met me right where I was, and I felt able to go from there.” … read more
