Community Life

More about life at Dorje Denma Ling

At Dorje Denma Ling there is a core year-round, residential staff of approximately twelve people who work together to create a community based on Shambhala principles and to provide a contemplative container for program visitors. The Dorje Denma Ling environment offers an inviting retreat setting for local, regional and international gatherings not only for Shambhala Buddhism but for all traditions that promote individual and global health and harmony. Program content spans all levels of experience with meditation and the human spiritual journey. Over 1,000 visitors come through the center in the course of a year.

The center is an active participant in the support and nourishment of the local community of Tatamagouche. There is an open house every Sunday morning throughout the year to which all are welcome.
