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.
