Rigpa’s Dublin meditation centre, established in 1986, is a place to discover and connect with the practice of meditation drawn from the authentic wisdom of Tibetan Buddhist teachings. We offer the opportunity to explore how this can help us in our busy modern lives. For those who have already established a meditation practice, the centre is somewhere to come and gain inspiration and support. Our centre is in the heart of Dublin and features an inspiring shrine room with a golden Buddha statue. We look forward to seeing you at Rigpa Dublin – a refuge in the heart of the city.

Sangha Open Evening/Day

All welcome. An evening/day of teachings and a chance to catch up with sangha friends.

At Rigpa, we use the word Sangha more broadly to refer to our community of dedicated students, who have made a personal commitment to the study and practice of Buddhism in their lives.)
