CANCELLED – An introduction to Phowa – Ireland – 29/30 September

A simple and wonderful method for the liberation of consciousness when our physical body dies

We are happy to announce the forthcoming weekend with Lama Jigme in Ireland during which he will give an introduction to the practice of Phowa, also described as transference of consciousness at the moment of death. Phowa is an exceptionally strong and fast method whereby realization of stable meditation is not required. This makes it a very suitable method for everyone.

29th & 30th September, from 10 am to 5 pm.

Where: Center” Feakle, County Clare (V94W2Y8), Ireland

Phowa is a profound practice found within the Tibetan Buddhist tradition

Although to a complete newcomer some of the concepts and ways of seeing embodied in this practice may seem hard to grasp, there is no doubt that everyone will come away with a deeper understanding, and for those who wish to build on this, there will be many opportunities to do so in the future.

Lama will teach in English with regular intervals to clarify any difficult points or mispronunciations by him of the English terms.

Cost for this non-residential two day course is €110 (including a light lunch). A small reduction is available for anyone who feels the need to avail of it.

For those needing overnight accommodation nearby we recommend The Clare Ecolodge (situated less than 1 mile from “Center”) who offer us very reasonable rates for single, double & dormitory-style rooms and will also provide an ample continental breakfast (again at a good price).

Registration is secured on receipt of a deposit of €50 before Sept 15th  (Methods for payment will be sent to you personally on receipt of your registration email.
