Traditional Tibetan Medicine Clinic 23rd September (Time: 9:00 am - 5:00 pm)

Traditional Tibetan Medicine offers a truly holistic approach to your health and wellbeing. The Tibetan medical system focuses on treating the root cause of the problem as opposed to alleviating the discomfort caused by the symptoms.
It can be used alone or in conjunction with Western medicine.
It recognises how dietary, psychological, lifestyle and environmental factors cause imbalance in the body and mind.

Our medicines are sourced from rare plants and herbs grown on the Tibetan Plateau.
The medicines are made according to an age-old tradition, which follows strict methods, and uses sophisticated processing techniques.

lobsang_arranThe practitioner, Lobsang Dhonden Soktsang, will see you in strictest confidence. Although his English is still improving, if you speak slowly and clearly, he will be able to understand what is necessary for your consultation. If you have any doubts about this, in each of his clinics there is an assistant for the clinic of the day.

We have a sliding scale of rates for consultation, depending on the financial circumstances of the patient, with concessionary and medical card rates.

Mindfulness Based Living Course (MBLC)

                 ‘A Mindfulness Journey’

Mindfulness is an inherent capacity we all have to be aware of our present moment experience in a kind and non-judgmental way.  This course will take you on a step by step experiential journey of Mindfulness in a secular context with a view to integrating it into your everyday life.  Cultivating the skills of Mindfulness help us live more consciously and lead happier and healthier lives. It enables us to access inner resources to support us with the challenges we all meet as we live our lives.  It has been proven to reduce stress, improve mental and physical health, enhance relationships, aid sleep and boost vitality.

This course has been developed by Rob Nairn, a world-renowed Mindfulness teacher and the Mindfulness Association.  It provides a map from which to explore our minds with kindness and curiosity.  At heart it is about discovering our potential and flourishing in our lives.

The course runs for 8 weeks and also includes a day of practice.  Each week builds on the previous week moving through the following themes;

  • Start where we are.
  • The body as a place to stay present.
  • Introducing mindfulness support.
  • Working with distraction.
  • Exploring the undercurrent and the attitude of the observer.
  • Cultivating self-acceptance
  • A Mindfulness Based life

 

A course manual and audios of the practices are included.  Email or phone support is available from the tutor and reading is recommended.   It is for anyone beginning their journey or for those who wish to deepen their practice.  Places are limited.

A Gentler Heart - workshop with Alistair Appleton 25th November - 26th November 2017 (Time: 10:00 am - 5:00 pm)

We are delighted to welcome Alistair back to Dublin where he will host another of his experiential and transformative workshops.

The Dalai Lama says that “all our suffering comes from caring about ourselves and all our happiness comes from caring for others”. And yet we live in a world that puts “self” first and the ‘me-me-me’ culture we live in pre-programs self-interest.

Buddhism famously questions the nature of that ‘self’ and does so not from an intellectual place but one of meditative experience. The deeper we sit with the raw experience of the heart the more impossible it becomes to wall ourselves off from the experiences of others.
We become more empathic but then a surprise happens: we start to realise that opening up to the “otherousness” of the World actually makes life brighter, more adventurous, wider and wiser.

This weekend course is looking to explore the meditative path towards that experience of the gentle heart. Drawing on his experience as a therapist as well as long-term meditator, Alistair uses meditative practices, bodywork and group exercises to explore the world of emotions, togetherness and heart-felt connection know in Buddhism as ‘bodhicitta’ and to sound out the blocks and anxieties that stop us getting there.

It’s suitable for beginners or those who want to re-visit the bodhicitta practices from a somatic place.
