Supporting Rigpa Cork Meditation Centre

Rigpa Cork was established in 1994 to support the study and practice of Tibetan Buddhist meditation. Since then, we have continued to offer an open and welcoming environment in which to explore the Tibetan Buddhist teachings on meditation and compassion.   We aspire to provide support and a refuge for both practicing sangha and those new to meditation. All are welcome.

Our programme will be offered online for the duration of Covid restrictions.

Venue: Bru Columbanus, Cardinal Way, Wilton, Cork, T12TN97.

A space to sit and be, with light guidance given. A time to rest in awareness of our experience as it is, from moment to moment.

Whatever experiences we have ,whatever we are going through, whatever we feel in the moment, we can learn to be with it in a more loving way. A Loving Kindness or Compassion / Tonglen practice is always included during each session.

Meditators at all levels are very welcome, chairs are provided, bring a cushion if you wish. There is always time to share and check in with each other.

Please wear a face mask as you enter the building, non mandatory during the meditation session.
