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.
Autumn 2020 course details will be posted soon.

Time to Meditate (Online)


Wednesday 7.00pm – 8.00pm (resuming September 9th)

Time to Meditate is an opportunity to practice meditation and loving kindness together, and includes time to connect and check in with each other.

These sessions are open to all but best suited to those with previous experience of meditation.

If you would like to join one or more of these sessions please register by emailing cork@rigpa.ie

The sessions will be held on the Zoom platform.

A suggested donation of €5 towards each session much appreciated.

Please don’t let finance be an obstacle to attending.

Rigpa Students – All-Encompassing Path Study Programme

The next module of the All-Encompassing Path on the famous mahayana text the Bodhicharyavatara begins in October 2020.

The Bodhicharyavatara guides us along a complete path to enlightenment by means of gradual training in wisdom and compassion in all our activities.

Written in India, by the great master and saint Shantideva, this text is revered and treasured by all lineages of Tibetan Buddhism. As an example, it was one of the only possessions of the great Dzogchen master Patrul Rinpoche who taught and received it over 100 times. It is relevant for all stages of the buddhist path, from the beginner levels up through Vajrayana and Dzogchen.

“If I have any understanding of compassion and the bodhisattva path, it is entirely on the basis of studying the Bodhicharyavatara that I possess it.” His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama

Monthly Gatherings will take place online while Covid restrictions are in place.
