An opportunity to practice meditation in the inspiring atmosphere of our centre in Rigpa Dublin

About this event

These Saturday mornings provide an opportunity to come together to practice in the inspiring environment of our meditation centre. It is suitable for everyone – beginners
and more experienced meditators alike.
Meditation is a way to cultivate greater mindfulness and awareness and to familiarise ourselves with a more relaxed, spacious, and present way of being.
The Simply Sitting Saturdays will include guidance on sitting and walking meditation that anyone is welcome to join in. We also include meditations on loving kindness and compassion.
