Accommodation


Accommodation for Out of Town attendees

We have two retreat rooms at the ground level of the centre. If there are no personal retreats during the program period, the rooms will be made available to attendees from out of town who require accommodation. Please write to sakyavancouver@shaw.ca for further information.

Thank you so much. I am only adding this now as the rooms have just been renovated/prepared and ready for people’s use. Later, I will take some photos of the retreat rooms and facilities and will request you to add another section to the website. The centre will accept retreatants who wish to do retreat in those rooms. It is good opportunity as they have good access to Jetsun Kushok who goes to the centre for pujas.
