Our purpose is to share the Buddha’s teachings that show us how to transform our tired, stressed and confused minds into the effortless self-perfected state of our true nature. The path we offer at Rigpa embodies the authentic traditions of Tibet, in a way that is directly relevant to people in the modern world.
We wish to advise you that our retreats are based on Tibetan Buddhist teachings and traditions and are not a substitute for psychotherapy, psychiatric treatment or medication of any kind. If you have a psychological, psychiatric, or medical condition, please talk to your physician or therapist before registering for the retreat. Although Rigpa has a duty of care to all students and specific policies and procedures that establish guidelines for safe conduct and care for vulnerable persons, Rigpa does not provide mental health care.
