De-Tong Ling Retreat Centre (DTL) is a Buddhist retreat centre at the north-western end of Kangaroo Island in South Australia. We offer individual retreat accommodation in five self-contained earth-walled houses and hold two annual group meditation retreats, 4 days over Easter and 10 days in October.
The centre is under the spiritual guidance of Kyabje Thubten Zopa Rinpoche and is affiliated to the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT). Please click here to access the FPMT Australia website.
De-Tong Ling is located on 1300 acres of wilderness, 3 kms from the coast and with long views out to sea. The pure air and water of its pristine environment, and the deep silence of its remote location, provide ideal conditions for retreat.
We welcome retreat applications from all Buddhist traditions and other contemplative faiths. Experience in isolated meditation practice and willingness to abide by the centre’s protocols are essential.
