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.

This is an opportunity to practise meditation. The sessions are lightly guided, however the primary focus is on providing a quiet space to practise. It is a wonderful opportunity to come and meditate in an inspiring environment & take the time to come home to yourself.
Lunch-time meditation on Tuesdays may resume in 2018.

Sangha Open Evening/Day
Next date tba, hopefully in 2018
All welcome. An evening/day of teachings and a chance to catch up with sangha friends.
(Sangha is an ancient word in the Pali and Sanskrit languages meaning “association”, “assembly”, “company” or “community” and refers in Buddhism to the monastic community of ordained Buddhist monks or nuns. 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.)
