Shambhala Meditation Weeklong Retreat

August 26 – September 2, 2018


If you’re feeling like it’s time to get away to a quiet spot to recharge your batteries, we have just what you need — a week-long Shambhala Meditation retreat!

Shambhala Meditation helps us get in touch with our feeling sense, so that we can be more present and appreciative of our world. Our meditative experience unfolds beautifully using this method, especially in a natural and peaceful setting like Dorje Denma Ling.

You can read what Mipham Rinpoche says about Shambhala Meditation and find program details here. Full attendance meets the weekthün requirement that is a prerequisite for various advanced programs.

All are welcome. No prerequisites apply. Please join us at beautiful Dorje Denma Ling to experience Shambhala Meditation.


Dorje Denma Ling is a non-profit Shambhala retreat centre. We host group retreats that foster a more awake, kind and caring culture. Our collaborative learning programs bring together like-minded people, who are concerned about the environment, and passionate about creating sane society – a society that promotes basic goodness, courageous compassion and respect for each other and for the world.

Dorje Denma Ling is situated on a hill in a beautiful rural area of Nova Scotia, Canada, near the village of Tatamagouche. The land is surrounded by forests and organic farm land, and overlooks the Northumberland Strait. Here you can enjoy the natural environment, space, the vast views and open sky.

Only one hour from the Halifax International Airport, Dorje Denma Ling is a place to slow down and fully relax.

Dorje Denma Ling is Canada’s only Shambhala International residential program centre. It was founded in 1992 under the auspices of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche and his son and heir, the Sakyong, Mipham Rinpoche.
