What We Offer

Meditation and Compassion through to traditional Buddhist studies

Rigpa centres offer a range of courses and programmes for everyone – whether you want to learn how to meditate and develop compassion to overcome the mental and emotional challenges of daily life, or engage with a complete path of study and practice that follows every stage of the Buddha’s teachings and can lead to enlightenment.

Meditation and compassion have been shown to be beneficial in many different ways, including bringing peace of mind, tackling stress, depression and other mental health problems. They can also help us to develop more kindness and warm-heartedness for ourselves, our families and those around us.

To find a course near you check our events page or contact one of our city centres by following one of the links on the Map.

Ongoing covid restrictions mean that our programme is currently being offered online.

Rigpa International

 

For those who wish to go deeper into studying and practising Buddhism, Rigpa offers an in-depth curriculum of study, reflection, practice and retreat based on the graduated stages of the Buddhist path of awakening.

Rigpa also offers a traditional study college (shedra) and short and long practice retreats (drupdra).

 

Rigpé Shyönnu

Rigpé Shyönnu are an international group of young people (aged between 18 -35) who share an interest in Buddhist thought and practice. We aim to create a sense of community and friendship that supports young people to work with their minds and hearts amidst the challenges of modern life.

Every summer and winter we organise international retreats. Throughout the year, we also hold other local events in Amsterdam, Berlin, Cologne, London and other cities. Currently, we are offering a number of online events.

Spiritual Care Programme

The Spiritual Care Programme is an international network that offers non-denominational, contemplative-based education, training and care. Its aim is to support people facing loss, ill health or dying and those who care for them. We offer online courses, and training programmes for professionals as well as public workshops and retreats to help people discover their own inner resources for well-being and wholeness.

To support people in need – those who are living with illness or disability, have received a new diagnosis or are experiencing grief or burnout – we have established Care Centres in Ireland and in Germany.
