Retreatant on grounds near the Gompa

Outside the Gompa

Dorje Ling has a wonderful, natural, simplicity and beauty … a very special place to be … places such as this are becoming rare in the modern world.

Dorje Ling Retreat Centre (previously Illusion Farm) is located in the beautiful and secluded Lorinna Valley in the heart of Tasmania, in mountains not far from the Cradle Mountain World Heritage Park.

The Centre is situated on 48 acres of native forest and parklands, and includes a beautiful hexagonal log meditation building, a kitchen/dining building, a caretaker’s/manager’s house, a self-contained long-term retreat house/teacher’s residence, a solar-powered shower system, and several retreat huts. The property is serviced by both solar power and gas, and it also has ample space for camping. Walking and meditation tracks give access to the surrounding bushland. Many native birds provide a wonderful soundscape along the walking trails. Situated above a lake and bounded by forested hills, this peaceful sanctuary has a healing power which has been recognised by all who have meditated here. See testimonials.

The Vision

To build up the Dorje Ling Retreat Centre property as a beneficial resource for all beings.

Please participate in the preservation of the Centre which will continue to support the teaching of wisdom, compassion and non-clinging awareness.
