Rigpa's meditation room in Athlone

“Meditation is the greatest gift you can give yourself” The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying.

Led by experienced instructors, this evening offers an introduction to meditation and an opportunity to practice together in a group.

We also explore some important topics from the Buddhist wisdom tradition. These topics include such things as impermanence and interdependence, compassion and contentment and our own fundamental goodness.

We will also learn how to bring the benefits of these practices into everyday life.

Open to complete beginners and those who already practice meditation.

All welcome!

Suggested donation €8 or €6 low income or whatever you can afford.
