Lake Sylvia Suzuki Institute is held at Koinonia Retreat Center, a 73-acre camp and retreat center an hour outside of the Twin Cities. It is a perfect balance between rustic and comfortable, where you can listen to the loons call as the Milky Way rises over the lake but also turn on the lights and take a hot shower. See some of the beautiful surroundings (indoors and out) below!

To reach Koinonia from the Twin Cities:

Travel west on Hwy 55 from Minneapolis to Annandale, MN. Continue west three (3) miles past Annandale on Hwy 55. Turn left on County Road 3, right onto 80th St and then left onto Pilger Ave.

If you are flying in to MSP or do not own a car, transportation is available for a small fee. Please let us know that you will need car service on your registration form and we will be in touch with you about your travel plans.
