the Practice

Dzogchen Beara Buddhist Meditation Center , in Ireland, offers various events and retreats. The retreats offer accommodations to suit anyone with all tastes and budgets including farmhouse hostel dormitory beds, secluded clifftop cottages and ocean view conservatory rooms in the beautiful Care Centre. One of the most important aspects of the Buddhist Tradition is cultivating compassion for all, including those that are going through tough times, are ill, in the process of dying or have passed away. In light of this, they offer a variety of services to support those who are grieving or to remember those who have died. These services include sympathy or prayer cards, the lighting of butter lamps, memorial and funeral services, and memorial benches, trees or mani stones.

the Place

In Ireland, Rigpa has four city centres and a number of study groups, as well as being home to Dzogchen Beara, located in West Cork.  They offer a place where everyone, regardless of age, background, of all faiths or none, is welcome to come and explore the methods and techniques that come from the Buddhist tradition. Many Tibetan masters, and almost everyone who visits, comment on the extraordinary qualities of Dzogchen Beara – its beautiful natural environment and an atmosphere of profound peace which comes from deep spiritual practice. There is also a Spiritual Care Centre which was created to help people who are living with illness or disability, have received a new diagnosis or are experiencing grief or burnout. You can also book a Supported Stay there. They offer listening and companionship, as well as guidance in meditations and contemplations. While these practices come from the Buddhist tradition, they are universally meaningful for those of all faiths and for those with a secular outlook on the world.
