The traditional three-month Vajrayogini retreat will be offered beginning July 22, 2018. Her Eminence Sakya Jetsun Chimey Luding Rinpoche, with great kindness, will bestow the initiations and practice instructions and perform the traditional fire puja at the conclusion of the retreat. For those who have made the commitment, this is a rare opportunity to perform the basic retreat with the blessings and under the guidance of a Sakya high lama who is herself considered to be an emanation of the Buddha Vajrayogini.  An Hevajra or Chakrasamvara initiation from a Sakya master is required to attend any of the events.

Registration is now open (click above).  A 50% deposit is required to hold a reservation.  If it becomes necessary for Sakya Kachod Choling to cancel the retreat, you will receive a 100% refund less any PayPal or bank fees.  If you cancel before March 1, you will receive a 100% refund less any PayPal or bank fees.  If  you cancel after March 1 or leave the retreat before the retreat ends (for family or medical emergency reasons only), you will receive retreat credit on a space available basis.

Please be advised that the number of students expressing interest in this retreat already far exceeds the space available.  Anyone who makes the 50% deposit but does not immediately receive a place in the retreat may be placed on a waiting list or receive an immediate refund.  Those on the waiting list will receive a 100% refund, less PayPal or bank fees, if we are not able to give them a place in the retreat.  Please email to with questions.
