Arriving at the Centre: As you walk down the gravel driveway you are greeted by an impressively crafted Tibetan door. Nestled amongst a sanctuary of trees and flowers and waving Tibetan prayer flags the surroundings of the Gompa (meditation hall) support a reflective and meditative learning environment. The Kora (or path around the Gompa) has also been carefully constructed to support practice.
