Profound Treasury: Entering the Path

With Shastri Steve Gleich and Catherine Neill

May 14 - 16, 2021

Please Note: we cannot accept visitors from outside of the “approved regions” specified by the Nova Scotia Government. Please check the current Travel Guidelines on our homepage before registering. 

This class will be based on teachings from Volume I of The Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma, the teachings of Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche.

Join the Dorje Denma Ling staff as they begin their season of practice and study together. In 2021, we will be exploring the teachings of the Hinayana as taught by Trungpa Rinpoche. During this weekend we will look at our motivation to practise meditation, then begin discussing qualities of a dharmic path and what it means to take refuge in the three jewels.

All are welcome to join us!  It is a great way to refresh your understanding of these profound dharma teachings.


Tuition: $108
Meals: $40
: Additional. Prices vary by type. (Please see the Registration Page for options.)


We are temporarily offering a discounted single occupancy rate on accommodations for those attending alone. This option defaults to a room in the Lodge. However, if you choose a single in a cabin or tent, we will adjust your invoice to reflect the Covid rate.

ONLY CHOOSE DOUBLE OCCUPANCY IF you are attending the program with a friend or partner, otherwise you may still be charged the single price for the room, cabin, or tent.

Comments or Special Needs Field

We would like you to spend the weekend with us, but if you can only attend one day, please register and leave a comment indicating which day we should expect you. We will adjust your Guest Statement accordingly.
