offered by Dzogchen Beara
6 Week Meditation Course
with Susan Browne and Rob Van Willigen
Tuesdays 7pm to 8.30pm, September 20 to October 25 (Irish time)
Meditation as taught by the Buddha is something that can be practised by anyone, of any age or background. It’s a process of coming to understand and know our mind, and gives us the tools to learn to work with it. With meditation practice we can discover a profound peace that is always with us, beneath the turbulence of all our thoughts and emotions.
Whether a beginner or someone who has been meditating for a while, this course will provide an experiential guidance in meditation and all the tools necessary to feel the benefit in every aspect of life.
The sessions will include instruction, guided meditations, discussion and time to reflect on how we can apply what we learn in our day-to-day life.
Susan Browne has 30 years experience of Buddhist meditation and compassion practices.
She has been guiding groups and individuals in retreat over the past 25 years, both at Dzogchen Beara, and at the Institute of Wisdom and Compassion, France.
Susan specialises in individual sessions, giving guidance on meditation methods that will help best move through challenges one is facing.
Rob Van Willigen
After reading The Tibetan B ok of Living and Dying in 2001, Rob van Willegen found a Rigpa centre near his student flat in Groningen and enrolled in the first available course. He discovered the profundity of the Buddha’s teachings. He was encouraged by the advice to examine these teachings to see if they relate to our experience and enthusiastically took up this challenge. He has studied and practised Tibetan Buddhism ever since. Rob studied Dutch language and literature and combines a full-time job as a marketing and communications professional with Buddhist practice. Having benefited tremendously from the essential instructions on meditation, he believes they offer a perfect path in modern times.
