About Us

aboutus_frontimage_2a

With the guidance and gracious patronage of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Rigpa offers those following the Buddhist teachings a complete path of study and practice, along with the environment they need to experience the teachings fully.

At the same time, Rigpa seeks to explore how the wisdom and compassion of the Buddha’s teachings can benefit many different areas of life in today’s world.

The meditation courses we offer are suitable for those with any faith or with none. Presented in blocks of 5 weeks, each with a different focus, courses are facilitated by volunteer instructors, who are part of the worldwide Rigpa organisation.  Each instructor has completed a 5-year training programme, which includes an annual retreat with Sogyal Rinpoche.
