Gampo Abbey is a Western Buddhist monastery in the Shambhala tradition. Founded by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche in 1984, it is a lineage institution of Shambhala and a corporate division of the Vajradhatu Buddhist Church of Canada. Pema Chodron is the monastery's principal teacher and Thrangu Rinpoche, its abbot. Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche is the spiritual director.
