The center is located on 20 acres of beautiful tree-covered hillside on San Juan Island, Washington. The serene, natural setting with a view of Mt. Baker offers a place of refuge and support for Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike year 'round. At present, the facilities at Sakya Kachod Choling are designed to offer very affordable space for private, individual retreat and small group retreats. It is an ideal place to step back from our hectic, fast paced lives, to reflect and look inward.
Retreats can range from strict Vajrayana practices to simple, meditative time in one's room. Walks on the grounds or down the mile long private road to the waterfront can make the quiet and beauty of the natural setting a wonderful part of your retreat experience. SKC also conducts its own group retreats under the guidance of affiliated teachers (see the calendar for details on upcoming group retreats under the guidance of Her Eminence Jetsun Kushok).
