Program description

Just Sitting: A Mindfulness Retreat

An eight day mindfulness meditation group retreat

Dorje Denma Ling Retreat Center

This program is especially suitable for those who have a mindfulness practice as part of their professional or personal development, such as MBSR instructors, education professionals, health care professionals, mediators or anyone applying mindfulness and contemplative disciplines in their work live.

The eight-day retreat is a valuable opportunity to deepen and strengthen your practice in a relaxing, peaceful environment in the gorgeous hills of Nova Scotia, without any religious strings attached.

Our land offers plenty of space for contemplative walks and silent reflection. Come enjoy our warm hospitality featuring nutritious and delicious food, a comfortable and beautiful environment and the uplifted and kind support of our meditation community. Participants may choose to do this retreat in silence. You can take advantage of a full eight day retreat or choose partial participation.
