Whether you are looking for instruction and support with your meditation practice or a complete path to enlightenment, Rigpa courses have something to offer you.
Rigpa has developed a unique course called ‘What Meditation Really Is’ to support students in pacifying their busy minds and defusing powerful emotions. Each individual has the opportunity to gain a genuine experience of meditation and receive all the tools necessary to integrate the benefits into every aspect of their lives.
When resting in a state of relaxed awareness, peace and stability of mind naturally arise, giving students a chance to unlock their own natural confidence, compassion and creativity.
This programme brings together over 2,000 years of Buddhist wisdom and experience in a way that is authentic, accessible and completely relevant to modern life.
Compassion and Loving Kindness
By cultivating compassion and loving kindness both for themselves and others, students develop their capacity for empathy, inner strength and their own happiness.
The practice of loving kindness is also a very effective way to work with emotions. Going through the different stages of the practice provides an opportunity to meet, and purify, different negative emotions which normally block our ability to love.
The Buddhist training in loving kindness also includes meditations on compassion, joy and equanimity.
Advanced Buddhist Studies
For those who wish to study further, Rigpa offers a complete program that follows each stage of the Buddha’s path until enlightenment.
This includes the foundation practices of the Vajrayana, ultimately leading to the study of Dzogchen.
