Vision

More than ever, our world needs places of depth learning and transformation. Clear Sky provides a place for people to refresh and recharge, to grow and transform, and to return to their lives with new perspectives, energy, and compassion.

In light of this vision, we are raising money towards the construction of a new temple complex that will support the important work we do at Clear Sky.

Background

Over the past 16 years, the teachers, residents, and supporters of Clear Sky Retreat Center have created a refuge to connect with nature, individual growth, and meditation practice. The response to the Center’s offerings has been so successful that we need to expand our current amenities to keep up with the demand for extended stays at Clear Sky as well as to accommodate the growing number of meditators.

The additional facility will include a temple to provide adequate space for group meditation and other trainings, multiple bedrooms to increase our ability to provide extended stays, and a Japanese garden in the center of the complex for the enjoyment of all meditators, retreatants, and residents. While our teachings – and the temple – are based in Buddhist tradition, the teachings are non-sectarian.

Donations

Any donation amount will be helpful as we build the funds to start work on the construction project, and we are deeply grateful for your support.
