Shogam Hermitage Project

A piece of land was donated to Traleg Rinpoche in Crestone, Colorado. Rinpoche gave this land to E-Vam and left plans to develop this site into a retreat centre and he has named it ‘Shogam Hermitage’.

Traleg Khandro is committed to ensuring Rinpoche’s wonderful vision for the Crestone land is brought to fruition. Detailed plans for each step are currently being developed and we hope that stage one,  will commence in 2016.

We encourage you to donate to this extremely important project.

  • Phase One: Retreat Accomodation
  • Phase Two: The Gompa
  • Phase Three: The Stupa



Phase One: Retreat

In the first phase we will be constructing a meditation room, self-contained rooms for individual and group retreat accommodation, kitchen and bathroom facilities.

Phase Two: The Gompa

Traleg Rinpoche left sketches of a traditional style temple for the site. Phase two will extend the Temple to include the main meditation hall, library and special accommodation for visiting teachers.

Phase Three: The Stupa

In phase three a commemoration stupa for Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche the 9th will be constructed.
