Under the guidance and blessings of Her Eminence Sakya Jetsun Chimey Luding Rinpoche, Sakya Kachod Choling will offer the rare and precious opportunity to participate in a three-month group Vajrayogini retreat or to perform an individual Vajrayana retreat of your choosing.

The retreats will take place in the summer and early fall of 2020, and the exact dates will be announced soon.  Contact us to receive first notice when more information is available and when registration opens.

The group of students performing the traditional three-month Vajrayogini retreat will receive the special training and support that Sakya Kachod Choling has been offering Vajrayogini practitioners since the first group retreat was held 14 years ago.

This summer it is also possible to do another kind of individual retreat along side the group retreat.   Most Vajrayana retreats in the Sakya tradition are allowed, such as a shorter Vajrayogini retreat or a White Tara, Green Tara, Manjushri, Chenrezig, or Vajrapani retreat.  Individual retreatants receive full support and the same access to Jetsun Kushok and staff that the members of the group retreat receive.

Come to the beautiful San Juan Island in Washington State to enjoy and benefit from a conducive retreat environment and meals made from the center’s organic vegetable garden.

Vegetarian meals are provided as part of the cost of the retreat.  See the multiple accommodation options described on our website.  The retreat cost depends primarily on the type of housing selected and the length of the retreat.  A 50% deposit is required to hold a retreat reservation.

Contact Sakya Kachod Choling at if you have questions or think you might be interested in performing a retreat with us this summer and/or early fall.  Space is limited, and time with Jetsun Kushok is precious.
