Rigpa Cork established in 1994 is a centre for the study and practice of Tibetan Buddhist meditation.

The Cork Centre endeavours to create and provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere for all.
Time to Meditate
Wednesdays 7.30pm – 8.30pm
Resuming on Wednesday 12th September 2018
‘Time to Meditate’ is not an introductory course in meditation but rather an opportunity and space just to sit and practice meditation together. On alternate weeks we will also include a guided Loving Kindness practice. You are welcome to join us for a cup of tea afterwards.
These sessions are open to all and suited best for those with previous experience of meditation. No booking required.
What Meditation Really Is
Thursdays 7pm – 9pm
5 week course November 15th – December 13th
Module 2: Using our Senses, Thoughts and Emotions as a Support for Meditation
Often when we meditate, we find that we are easily distracted by our senses, thoughts and emotions. A pain in our leg or back, or some thoughts about our day circling through our mind in a seemingly endless loop can make us completely forget about meditation. Rather than seeing common situations like these as something we need to avoid or eliminate in order to practise ‘properly’, this module shows us how to use them to strengthen and support our meditation.
Instead of constantly needing to react to whatever passes through the mind, we discover how to let go of perceptions, thoughts and emotions. The space and awareness this opens up inside can completely change how we are with ourselves and everybody else. In circumstances that could previously have led us to cause harm or confusion, it becomes possible to create happiness.
Suitable for complete beginners or those wishing to refresh their meditation practice.
