In 1986 Sakya Kachod Choling was begun as a retreat center for H.E. Sakya Jetsun Chimey Luding Rinpoche (Jetsun Kushok) of the Sakya lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. Over the years this place has been blessed by the presence of not only Jetsun Kushok, but other masters of the Sakya lineage including H.H. Sakya Trizin, H. E. Luding Khenchen Rinpoche and other wonderful teachers from different Buddhist lineages and traditions.The Center is located on 20 acres of beautiful tree covered hillside on San Juan Island, Washington. The serene, natural setting 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 ranging from those doing strict Vajrayana practices to quiet, meditative time alone in the retreat rooms, walking on the property or the mile to the water's edge, are all possible here.SKC also conducts it's own group retreats under the guidance of affiliated teachers.For detailed information on a personal or group retreat, please contact Thrinley Di Marco at 360-378-4059 or e-mail email@example.com
