Working with the mind in meditation, we can bring more empathy and compassion into the way we relate to ourselves and others. During this weekend will see what happens when we look at life as a path of discovery and use all our experiences, good and bad, to awaken our compassionate heart.

Patrick brings clarity and humour to his exploration of what it means to live well in today’s complex world, helping us to discover ways to feel more calm, content and connected in everything we do.

The teachings Patrick will share on this weekend are largely based on 37 Practices of a Bodhisattva, a text by Gyalsé Tokmé Zangpo, a 14th Century Tibetan Buddhist master, whose timeless wisdom has a refreshing immediacy for the modern world.

As Patrick has a deep knowledge of these compassion teachings we are delighted to have this opportunity to welcome him back to Dzogchen Beara, to lead what promises to be a very special retreat.

Following the conclusion of the retreat there will be a session with Patrick for the Rigpa sangha.
