Rigpa Sangha National Gathering

For all the Rigpa Sangha
Friday 12 April, 7.30pm – Sunday 14 April, 1pm

A warm invitation is extended to the Rigpa Sangha in Ireland to join our annual sangha gathering.

The event will be facilitated by Susan Browne and the agenda is designed to be very interactive so everyone plays an important role. This will be a chance to connect and catch up with old friends and new. There will be time for discussion on topics of relevance to us as a sangha, as well as an opportunity to practice together. The weekend will also include Kum Nye led by Matt Padwick.

More details on the schedule to follow closer to the date. We hope to see you at Dzogchen Beara in April.
