Our Mission

Dorje Denma Ling is a Buddhist retreat centre that provides an environment for individuals and groups to practice meditation and contemplative disciplines to discover and experience their inherent wisdom.

Our mission is inspired and guided by the Shambhala, Kagyu and Nyingma teachings. Those who come to Dorje Denma Ling aspire to practice, study, work and live in a society based on compassion and kindness toward all sentient beings and our planet Earth.

Dorje Denma Ling Inclusion Policy

At Dorje Denma Ling all are welcome, regardless of their age, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, nationality, socio-economic status, or spiritual practice. We acknowledge the presence of many wisdom traditions on this earth and welcome anyone who would like to join us either on the land for a meditation retreat or in one of our online programs.

As the policy for Shambhala Code of Conduct affirms, we recognize that we cannot avoid bringing dominant group social dynamics into our community, but we aspire to become more aware of our blind spots and are committed to the personal and organizational transformation that is necessary to expand access to the dharma. inclusivity inclusive
