The Summercamp teachings  this year were  again in Portugal, the week was relaxing and  Rinpoche privileged us with a very helpful  teaching on the short White Tara sadhana by  Tenga Rinpoche. A review of  Bodhicharya  Summercamp can be found on the  Bodhicharya International website.

Visit of Ringu Tulku Rinpoche to Ireland, May 2017

Ringu Tulku has given dates for this years visit to Dublin Kagyu Samye Dzong  23rd-25th May, and to Dzogchen Beara in West Cork 26th -28th May.  The teachings have yet to be announced, and sadly the Bodhicharya Public Teaching Event normally held at the Hilton Hotel will not take place due to Rinpoche's extended travel schedule in response to more invitations and a growing interest in his teachings.  Rinpoche's visit to Ireland also coincides in part with His Holiness Karmapa's visit to the UK, which takes place that same week, with public events on 20th-21st May and 27th May. Please see previous post for details. 

His Holiness Karmapa visits the UK in May 2017 EVENT now SOLD OUT

The Long Life (Amitayus) Empowerment at the Lakeside International Hotel, Camberley Surrey on Saturday the 27th  May,  has immediately sold out.

Ringu Tulku Rinpoche  has had to cancel some of his own teaching dates around that time, but indicated that he will be keeping his Dublin Teaching schedule, for three evenings from 23rd- 25th May at Dublin Kagyu Samye Dzong, Kilmainham Well House. If there is any change it will be posted here.
