2014 Green Tara Retreat

Sakya Kachod Choling
Friday Harbor, WA

September 20 – 26 2014  H.E. Sakya Jetsun Chimey Luding Rinpoche will give the initiation, sponsored by the Sakya Foundation.
Green Tara, enlightened activity principle offers assistance in times of distress. Like a Great Compassionate Mother, she is ready to spring into action to aid beings.
Sakya Kachod Choling is very happy to announce that Jetsun Kushok has, with great kindness, agreed to give the Green Tara initiation this Fall. Her schedule allows her time to give the initiation but does not allow her to be here for the retreat. However this is a wonderful opportunity for experienced practitioners to deepen their practice and it will give those who would like to start the opportunity to do so.

Time with Jetsun Kushok is precious and retreat space is limited!  We encourage you to register as early as possible.
