4 April 2020

Due to the coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak, the Rigpa UK Trustees have taken the difficult decision to cease all in-person physical gatherings at the National Centre in London and at regional Branches and Groups from Monday 16 March. This is to ensure the well being of both our Sangha community and the general public. This means all Branches, Centres, Groups will be closed until further notice.

We don’t know how long this physical closure will last, but in light of this we have decided to postpone the planned Easter bank holiday city retreat, the Heartbeat of the Buddhist View: the Four Seals, and instead hold the retreat at another time later in the year. We know many of you have already booked for this event and ask that you please contact us for a full refund at [email protected]

Online alternatives: We are reviewing our courses and events to see what we may be able to offer online during the coming weeks and possibly months, including an online retreat for the Easter Weekend.

We continue to monitor and follow Government advice and will post further updates here as the situation evolves.

For our community, our sangha and membership, we will keep you updated via email as to how to connect with our online programme during this time.

With best wishes
Rigpa UK Trustees
