The Irish Sangha Trust (IST) was established in 2011 to support and foster teaching and meditation practice in the Theravada Buddhist tradition in Ireland. The Irish Sangha Trust is non-profit Buddhist organization, entirely dependent on the generosity of the public for voluntary donations.
Our annual schedule includes regular workshops, retreats and meditation sittings. Events are open to everyone from beginners to experienced practitioners. We welcome you to join our spiritual friends network and experience the profound benefits of meditation practice.

***To ensure the quality of practice.
1. Everyone participates in the respectful and committed way as one attending a Dharma event in person.
2. Focus on practice and not engage in anything other than with the group practice.
3. Switch video on the whole time and make sure the light and your position is right so you could engage with the group to the best you could.
