“The essence of retreat is setting up a boundary - and we are not actually talking about a physical boundary, but we are talking about a boundary of time, setting up a boundary between past and future, which ideally means we remain in presentness.”

Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche

Sea to Sky Retreat Centre

In 1993, Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche and friends began building Sea to Sky Retreat Centre on a secluded 40 acre site of extraordinary natural beauty in British Columbia's coastal mountain range.

The elegant and non-sectarian atmosphere of the Retreat Centre has made it an ideal environment for hosting a wide variety of programs and gatherings - from contemplative retreats within diverse religious traditions to human potential workshops; from yoga intensives to body work training.

The Retreat Centre also conducts its own group contemplative programs and seminars under the guidance of affiliated teachers.
