Welcome to
Milk Lake Shambhala Retreat Centre

Milk Lake is a rural retreat centre nestled in rolling farm country about one hour and 20 minutes southwest of Halifax, in Nova Scotia’s beautiful and scenic South Shore. Three large, well-appointed cabins with full kitchen and bathroom facilities offer quiet seclusion for meditation, study, contemplation, and the arts in a beautiful rural setting. The largest cottage, Buddhalocana, is also ideal for couples who wish to do retreat together.

To schedule a retreat, see the instructions on our Scheduling Your Retreat page.
