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.
Autumn 2017 – Public Programme
Wednesdays 7.30pm – 9.30pm
weekly from 27th September – 13th December; no class Weds Nov 1st
The evening will consist of two parts:
Part 1: The Essence of Meditation
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.
We will look at the benefits of the practice and its relevance to our everyday lives. This is an opportunity to learn or deepen our understanding of a simple method of meditation that is at once powerful and profound, exploring qualities such as mindfulness and awareness.
Part 2: Cultivating Compassion
The first step in cultivating compassion is meditation. Learning to focus our attention away from the usual distracted state that we find ourselves in, and training to be in the present moment.
We will also have the opportunity to explore a a complete picture of what compassion is; why it might be beneficial to us and the world around us; the possibility of training in a more wholesome way of being; and how we can go about that training – including additional meditation practices such as loving kindness meditation, cultivating compassion for oneself and others, and tonglen.
The techniques explored can be used to enhance people’s own beliefs, be they spiritual, religious or secular.
