What Meditation Really is

Wednesdays 7pm to 9pm (including tea break)



Rigpa's meditation room in Athlone

What Meditation Really Is  brings together over 2,000 years of Buddhist wisdom and experience in a way that is authentic, accessible and completely relevant to modern life.

Led by experienced instructors, it offers a complete introduction to meditation. Students will gain a genuine experience of meditation and all the tools they need to take the benefits into every aspect of their life.

Open to complete beginners as well as those who have some knowledge of meditation.

We recommend you follow the complete course, but if that is not possible for you then you are welcome to join when you can.

All welcome!
