We have previously announced the acquisition of our new retreat centre to KSDL members, and we are happy to report that the renovations are nearing completion. We will be making plans soon for the KSDL member's open house.  Here is more info for everyone who is interested in the activity of KSDL.

KSDL has recently purchased a new retreat centre just south of Georgian Bay, close to Wasaga Beach and Collingwood, 3 km from the town of Creemore. The new KSDL Retreat Centre is a four bedroom building situated on 5.8 acres of land. The property contains several forests, two ponds, landscaped lawns and well maintained perennial gardens. The main house has two kitchens, a dining room, living room, three washrooms, a laundry room, and space for a shrine room which the KSDL Lamas are presently working on. The sleeping accommodations include several bedrooms with many beds including bunk beds. There is a cabin in the gardens, and plenty of space on the property for camping.The house was purchased furnished and in good condition. We are presently installing insulation and renovating the lower kitchen. The property has sweeping views of the surrounding rolling farmland and forests in a beautiful area of Ontario known as the Purple Hills. We look forward to offering many regular retreats at the new Centre. Donations toward the purchase and renovation of this worthwhile project will be very much appreciated.
