Welcome to Skycreek Dharma Center!

The mission of Sky Creek Dharma Center is to support and sustain the activities of Buddhist sanghas and offer the Dharma to the community.

We are a meditation center shared by Buddhist meditation groups (sanghas) in the Chico area. Our sanghas regularly offer a variety of retreats, classes and workshops that are open to the community, and the community is welcome to use the center for compatible events.

Join us for relaxation and a welcoming community. We offer free meditation groups 5 nights per week.
