Supporting Rigpa Athlone Meditation Centre


Welcome to Rigpa Athlone – The centre was established in 2003.  We are situated in the heart of the Left Bank area of Athlone close to the River Shannon and Castle. We run a program of classes on meditation throughout the year. They are open to people of any ages and all walks of life.



The Eight Verses of Mind Training

Weds 7pm to 8.30pm

The Eight Verses are one of the most loved and famous advices on mind training in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. Written in the 11th century by Geshe Langri Tangpa it summarizes the entire path of compassion and wisdom in eight pithy verses. 

Open to everyone, no experience necessary.  Join us every Wednesday as we explore some of the life transforming practices of meditation, compassion and wisdom from the Buddhist tradition of Tibet.  Each evening there will be meditation practice, contemplation and discussion as we look at some of the most important themes that influence our life and happiness.

Please contact Anthony for more details on how to join on  086 061 7701. You can also use the email address above.

There is a suggested donation of €8 per class or €6 per class for those on reduced income or else what ever you can afford.

The course teachers are volunteers and all donations go towards supporting the running of the centre.


With current restrictions places will be limited so can you message to confirm that you plan to attend and we will reserve a place for you.

We will be following best practice guidelines so please wear your mask when coming in and out of the centre. During the class you don’t have to wear a mask.

Also you will need to be fully vaccinated or have recovered from Covid 19 in the last six months to attend.

We are really looking forward to seeing you all.
