Tibetan Medicine Clinic 23rd March - 23rd November 2019 (Time: 9:30 am - 5:00 pm)

Traditional Tibetan Medicine uses a holistic approach to health and well-being. It does not offer a quick fix to relieve symptoms, rather it aims to address imbalance in the body and mind. It can be used on its own or in conjunction with Western medicine. Tibetan medicine recognises the influence of dietary, psychological, environmental and lifestyle factors on the balance or imbalance of the body and mind. It aims to achieve health through balance.

Traditional Tibetan Medicine is safe and is appropriate for anyone. It can be used on its own or in conjuction with Western medicine.

Dying as best one can - with Ken Holmes 16th November - 17th November 2019 (Time: 11:00 am - 4:30 pm)

Dying As Best One Can

Nov 16 – 17

Practical teachings for the end of life from Atisha’s Seven Point Mind Training[i]

Retreat led by Ken Holmes

Of the various Buddhist teachings helping one prepare for death, the most appropriate and successful for the modern Western practiser are proving to be those from the Seven Points. Ken will take people through the various areas of very practical work, dealing with family, possessions and relationships on the outside and one’s own experience and thoughts on the inside. The course will include a simulation of a peaceful death. Although ideal for those already engaged in the Seven Points process, this retreat will contain much helpful advice, reflection and practice useful for anyone. Our experience is that it not only prepares for death but awakens one to life[ii].


[i] Point Four presents the Five Powers used in this life and has a special section for applying the Five Powers at the time of death.

[ii] Please note this is not a training in bardo (intermediate state after death) practices but one focused on what to do up to and including the moment of death.

Saturday 16th November 11am – 4.30pm

Sunday 17th November 11am – 4.30pm

Cost €35 per day (inlcudes simple vegetarian lunch – please note we cannot cater for special dietary requirements)

***Booking for this course is essential – please book your place on info@buddhism.ie or call 01 4537427

Eight Verses for Training the Mind - with Lama Zangmo 30th November - 1st December 2019 (Time: 11:00 am - 4:30 pm)

Dear Friends,

We are delighted to welcome Lama Zangmo back to Dublin. She has very kindly offered to teach the Eight Verses for Training the Mind.

Composed by the Buddhist Master Langri Tangpa (1054-1123), Eight Verses for Training the Mind is a text which offers essential training for cultivating the mind of compassion, wisdom, and loving kindness, and reveal the true essence of the Mahayana path.

The fundamental theme of mind training practice is the reorientation of our basic attitude, both toward ourself and toward our fellow human beings, as well as toward the events around us. The goal of mind training practice is the transformation of our thoughts, attitudes, and habits.
