Dechen Chöling - Shambhala Meditation Centre

Dechen Chöling is a meditation centre nestled in a beautiful and peaceful landscape in central France, where people from around the world come to learn to open up to the richness of their personal potential through the practice of meditation and other contemplative disciplines.

Learn how to meditate, delve into the wisdom teachings of Tibetan Buddhism, stretch beyond your limits in a yoga retreat, or practice mindfulness in one of our contemplative arts programmes. We invite you to discover this and more at Dechen Chöling.

Dechen Chöling is one of four land centres of the worldwide Buddhist Shambhala organisation, founded by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, and led by his son Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche today.

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
