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.
The Irish Sangha Trust is non-profit Buddhist organization, entirely dependent on the generosity of the public for voluntary donations.
The teaching itself is offered on free basis, all organizers and teachers are volunteers and do not financially benefit from IST events.
The donations are spent to cover costs of runing events. This is mostly: airplane tickets, accomodation and transportation for teachers, event venue rent.
If you wish to donate you can do so on the day of event you attend or via PayPal:
Volunteering and retreat organization
If you would you like to contribute to development of Buddhism in Ireland you can consider helping IST with retreat organization (managing and planning events, preparing venue, transporting teachers, offering food to monastic teachers etc.) or in other areas where you would like to help. On average it would take a couple of hours a month.
If you are interested contact us at email@example.com.
IST is run by a team of volunteer Buddhist practitioners. We will be very glad if you would like to join us and shape the future of IST together.
