Center's Description
For almost thirty years, practitioners have come to know Dorje Khyung Dzong ("Indestructible Garuda Fortress") as an ideal place for solitary retreat. Secluded on over four hundred acres of piņon and juniper forests in Southern Colorado at an altitude of 8200 feet, DKD provides the quiet and privacy of a solitary retreat for those who seek to deepen their spiritual practice through meditation.

While most of the retreatants who come here are practitioners of Tibetan Buddhism, people from any contemplative tradition who have a well established practice are welcome here.

Dorje Khyung Dzong does not offer any group programs and has no guest facilities. Retreatants must be participants in established spiritual communities and have specific guidelines on retreat from their spiritual teacher or guide. Each of the eight cabins is separated from the others and equipped for a single person with propane range and lights, a bed, a picnic cooler with ice, and a shrine or altar. Every cabin has an outhouse, water pump and a wood burning stove. The cabins do not have electricity or running water. A nearby showerhouse is available for hot showers and long term food storage. For more information, or to schedule your retreat, please contact us.
