Rigpa has had a presence in Limerick for over 30 years. Our volunteers first began to offer meditation in 1982. The first Rigpa centre in Limerick was established in 1994. Since then, we have continued to offer an open and welcoming environment in which to explore the wisdom and compassion of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition in a way that is authentic, accessible and beneficial for people of all ages, and from all walks of life. A warm welcome is offered to all, both old friends and new – we look forward to meeting you at Rigpa Limerick.
For the 2018 Autumn Programme please see below.
Many thanks for your continued support.
May you be well.
May you be happy.

The Essence of Meditation
Wednesdays 7.30pm -9.30pm
5 week course, 26th Sept – 24th October
Meditation offers us relaxation and freedom from stress, but it is much more than this. In the stillness and quietness of meditation the effortless peace of our innermost nature is revealed.
This course is an opportunity to learn a simple method of meditation that is at once powerful and profound. We will also look at the benefits of the practice and its relevance to our everyday lives.
All are welcome to attend. Suitable for beginners and for those with some background in meditation.
Suggested Course Fee (5 weeks): Full €60/Concession €40;
Lojong – The Seven Points of Mind Training
This Autumn, we will present the All-Encompassing Path Monthly Gatherings on alternate Tuesdays (not Sunday mornings like before).

- Tuesday September 11th 7:30 – 9:30 pm
- Tuesday September 25th 7:30 – 9:30 pm
- Tuesday October 9th 7:30 – 9:30 pm

His Holiness the Dalai Lama says that :
“The essential message of the lojong teaching is that if we want to see a better world, we should begin by improving our own mind. For me, the lojong tradition stands as the heart of the Buddha’s message of peace. It teaches us how to regard others with the dignity and care that they deserve, and also how to transcend the limitations of conventional ego-grasping. In brief, it is a guideline for our own enlightenment, leading to enlightened conduct in our own dealings with others.”
This class is suitable for those who have completed our meditation or introductory courses in the past and have established daily meditation practice, or for those students following Rigpa’s All-Encompassing Path (AEP) study programme. It is also very much intended as an opportunity for us all to meet, study & practice together.
Suggested Course Fee (per session): Full €12/Concession €8
(Note: for Rigpa AEP Students included as part of membership, no additional fee)
