Our Programs

Gomde California’s fall and spring programs provide a number of opportunities for deepening your experience and knowledge of the Dharma.  Lama Gerry Prindiville will be in residence throughout the year to give teachings on our lineage practices, lead group retreats, and offer guidance for individual retreatants.

Gomde California has developed a staffing system to encourage volunteers who would like to participate in the Gomde community and support the operation of the seminars. Many of these jobs come with discounts for those in need. Please visit the Work Exchange/Scholarship page for descriptions of the services needed.
