The place

In the heart of Dordogne, not far from some of the world's most ancient prehistoric sites (Lascaux, Les Eyzies, Le Moustier, La Madeleine), on the long ridge of the Côte de Jor that dominates the valley of the Vézère, are the houses of Dudjom Rinpoche and Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, which they visited frequently and where they gave many teachings.

It is in this area, blessed by their wonderful presence, that the Association's activities have grown and flourished.

The old farmhouse of Chanteloube, in its secluded valley, has developed into a retreat centre. The many visiting lamas invited to teach and participate in Chanteloube's activities stay in La Sonnerie, for 15 years the European seat of Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche. It is also the location of the Summer teachings and the various ceremonies celebrated throughout the Tibetan year. The farmhouse of La Bicanderie is now the office of the Association.
